The course consists of a lecture part and a seminar part.
The lecture part provides relevant introductory inputs for the seminar and focuses on the following topics:
- Sustainability challenges in spatial development
- Contributions of spatial planning to energy transition
- Contributions of spatial planning to climate change adaptation
- Urban redevelopment strategies
- Land policy - concepts and instruments
In the seminar part students (in groups of two) write and present a seminar paper guided by the lecturers. The seminar papers are based on evaluation and analysis of relevant international scientific literature.
This years seminar is dedicated to instruments of spatial planning and land policy to support land thrift, energy transition and climate change adaptation.
- Previous knowledge expected
Course for master students or phD-students! Knowledge of the courses "Spatial Planning" (Lecture) and "Projects in Spatial Planning" (Project work) is very recommended.
- Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)
After successful completion of the module:
- Students have gained a systematic overview on values and objectives of sustainable spatial development. They know the spatial requirements of energy transition and climate change mitigation as well as strategies and instruments of spatial planning and land policy to support land thrift, energy transition and climate change mitigation.
- Students have gained knowledge on sustainability challenges in spatial development, spatial development strategies regarding energy transition and climate change mitigation as well as basic concepts, challenges, and instruments of land policy. They are able to reflect the contributions of spatial planning and land policy instruments to land thrift, energy transition and climate change mitigation.
- Students have gained skills in assessing potentials and restrictions of spatial planning and land policy with regard to land thrift, climate change mitigation and energy transition.
- Students are able to critically read and reflect scientific papers and planning documents and to analyse strategies and instruments of spatial planning and land policy. They have improved their skills in writing papers and in providing feedback and arguments on the above-mentioned strategies and instruments.
- Students have consolidated their ability to independently study scientific literature and expand their skills in the evaluation of scientific readings.
