“As a trained urbanist, I choose to follow a range of EIT courses to strengthen my understanding of strategic planning instruments to help us strengthen the public's awareness and acceptance of a sustainability mobility transition.”

Linn Tramm

Project coordinator at the German Association for Housing, Urban and Spatial Development 

"This course (Designing a Livable Neighbourhood: The Woonerf Concept) is a wonderful introduction to designing livable, pedestrian-oriented street spaces. The material is presented in an extremely clear and logical way, and the course assignment forces you to apply your learning to a practical example - a place that matters to you!"
