TU Delft Sub-Saharan Africa Summer School Scholarship 2019, Netherlands


Application Deadline: 30 APRIL 2019.

The Department of Urbanism of the TU Delft  and the Chair of Spatial Planning and Strategy will promote the sixth edition of the Summer School Planning and Design with Water for Sustainability in July 2019.

The Summer School combines spatial planning, urban design and
environmental technology to tackle issues of sustainability, climate
adaptation and water management in urban environments. It invites
students to understand the theories and practices that bring together
water management, urban sustainability and spatial justice and to apply
the knowledge acquired in the elaboration of a vision and a spatial plan
and design for an area in the city of The Hague in The Netherlands.

The Summer School focuses on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and The New Urban Agenda, launched in Quito in 2016 as frameworks for sustainable urbanisation.

The aim of the Summer School is to explore the Dutch tradition
of planning and design with water and the integration of water
management and sustainability into urban development within the
framework of the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda.

The Summer School is led by the Delft University of Technology, in
collaboration with national and international partners, including the
City of The Hague, the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the
Environment, the Dutch Delta Programme, ARCADIS, Deltares and others
private and public partners.

This school includes site visits, talks with professionals and academics and a short studio-based exercise, where students and teachers will explore possibilities through the elaboration of a spatial vision, the design of a spatial strategy and spatial interventions in the city of the Hague, located in one of the most important Urbanised Delta Regions of the world.
