Why this programme?
Although there is a high consensus on the fact that urban planning has a fundamental importance in the implementation of measures to improve the climatic quality of cities and face global climate change, the professional practice of design and planning territorial and urban does not seem to have internalized it yet.

On the small scale there is extensive experience in bioclimatic urban design. In turn, with regard to buildings, there has been a major effort in recent years to increase energy efficiency, with the aim of simultaneously reducing the generation of greenhouse gases (directives 2002/91/EC and 2010 /31/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council on the energy efficiency of residential buildings).

However, on the large scale, that of urban and territorial planning, there does not seem to be a parallel awareness, being few initiatives that have been carried out so far to integrate the factors that influence climate change and, therefore, increase urban resilience.

This course in Urban Climate and Climate Change is born from the European project Competences for Sustainable City Development: Qualification Scheme for Climate Adaptation in Construction, Architecture and Planning (CLIM-CAP), as well as from the Urban-CLIMPLAN state project. It also takes as a reference the project La Isla de Calor Urbana: Effects on Climate Change and Modeling for Territorial and Urban Planning Strategies, financed by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO) and the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER).
Aims
This course is accredited by the European Union, in accordance with ISO EN 17024, which has the general objective of:

  • Offer professionals who develop their professional practice in the field of architecture and urban planning the qualification, skills and practical knowledge necessary for the sustainable development of the city in the field of adaptation of urban areas to climate change.
Who is it for?
  • Urban planners and technical or superior architects.
  • Engineers of various specialties.
  • Economists, geographers, sociologists or graduates in Environmental Sciences or Law.
  • Professionals dedicated to urban and territorial planning.
  • Professionals from public administrations in the areas of urban planning, territory, environment, etc.

Training Content

5 ECTS 30h
Urban Climate and Climate Change

  • Workshops where proposals for measures of adaptation to climate change in small and large scale work groups will be developed, as well as a role play.
  • Outputs of field work with the taking of climatic measures and practical exercises, such as the preparation of Climatopes and adaptation and recommendation measures in urban planning.
