  • Overview

    This course celebrates the city of Barcelona and embarks the student in a journey to better
    understand the concept of Sustainability and its novel applications. Starting with the question "why
    Barcelona?", we then move to enlightening examples of sustainability in the history and art of the city.
    Inspired by different concrete realizations, we analyze different approaches to sustainability,
    experience its emotionally loaded "dark side", visit several research institutions firmly committed to
    sustainability, visit some natural areas and finish the course with an inspiring experiential session.
    *this is the former "The Barcelona Journey towards Sustainability" course. Only the title has been
    revisited
