Home/Events/Transportation Shaping Sustainable Urbanization

In partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Insper is offering the course, Transportation Shaping Sustainable Urbanization: Connection with Urban Economics and Planning. Its main objective is to introduce students to changes in the urban environment expected from mobility investments and how they can be used to promote more sustainable and equitable cities.

We’ll look into how some characteristics of cities can be explained by their transportation systems, either by their history or their current features. We’ll also introduce theoretical basis and empirical evidence to analyze how technological innovations in mobility will create urban transformations, as well as their implications from an urban planning perspective. Finally, we’ll address aspects of urban mobility management, such as the importance of the metropolitan perspective and of public-private partnerships.

The classes will be lectures and there will be two talks by MIT professors, as well as a field trip at the end of the course.

From July 11th to 21st , it will be 8 Classes, 1.30PM to 5PM, mondays to thursdays.
