Why this programme?
This course seeks to offer viable proposals for sustainable growth that do not stop the growth of the city. It provides tools for professionals who are already working in the field of territorial planning in general, and specifically, for all of those people who are specialised in making territorial planning compatible with the environment. The way an urban project is designed, how it is integrated into the territory and how it affects the environmental quality in the area are concepts that help make up an important part of sustainable architecture. Land use regulation plays a fundamental role on the road to a more sustainable future, which has been established by a series of public political research projects and strategies that have been carried out both here in Spain and in the European framework.

The time has passed when metropolises experienced out of control, disorganised and chaotic growth, a time in which the limited capacity of these areas to absorb new habitants and offer them the necessary resources for their daily life was not heeded. Nowadays, public administrations are working to guarantee the supply of these resources (water, electricity, gas, rubbish collection service) and have designed projects aimed at building sustainable cities. Among the instruments used to do this are the local agenda 21s. These projects include transversal politics that take into account everything from mobility, the landscape, and waste to urban structure.

In the case of foreign students or Spaniards architects; without knowledge of the Legal Framework for Planning and Urban Management in Spain, conducting matter Introduction to Urban Law Spanish, which provides a set of introductory content to ensure a common minimum knowledge base, useful for future realization is recommended the master.
