Housing is of key importance for societies. It drives the economy and is a key issue for sustainable urban and regional development in growing as well as declining areas. This course focuses on sustainable housing development and deals with environmental as well as economic and social sustainability. How do housing markets work and how do governments intervene? How can the affordability, quality and energy efficiency of the housing stock be improved? The course will give insight in the European perspective on the development of a sustainable housing stock by presenting European and national goals, policies, regulations, assessment tools, process innovations and management approaches.

The summer program is designed to suit for the expectations of the participants for attending two weeks program. Lunch and coffee breaks are served during the program. A Pizza night will be organized on Wednesday evening of week One. Lunches are included. And one-day field trip will be arranged with a coach at Week Two. Evening meals and accommodations will be at your own expenses.
