Mobility forms a core challenge for contemporary society. Urban regions throughout the world — especially rapidly growing ones — are faced with the difficulty of finding a new balance between the positive and negative effects of mobile humans and goods.

This module prepares the participant to develop a constructive-critical stance that supports this ongoing search. To this end, the course develops a holistic view on the fundamental interrelations that underlie urban development, individual mobility behaviour and mobility systems. In developing this view, the participant comes to terms with the irreducible complexity and uncertainty that surrounds these domains and their interrelations. Next to conceptual enrichment, the module also focuses on key skills in relation to planning products that influence how we are 'Moving the City'.
