Our Approach

During this program, you will be partaking in 4 modules: modules 1 and 2 online at your own pace, module 3 in-residence in Munich, Germany at the Technical University Munich, and module 4 in-residence in Rotterdam, the Netherlands at Humankind HQ. During these 4 modules, you will witness and learn about the extraordinary experiments that European cities have implemented to transform their streets. Academics, professionals, and community experts will be your guide to reimagining the the street.


By learning key academic materials online, much of your time time in Rotterdam and Munich will be spent learning outside of the classroom, with experts who will take you around the city by cycling, walking, and taking public transit to showcase key locations that were transformed by street experiments.
