University of Amsterdam Summer School

Founding a three-week intensive course on the Circular City.

While at Metabolic, I founded, co-developed, and acted as Academic Director of a three-week intensive course called The Circular City: Towards a Sustainable Urban Ecosystem. The course is jointly run by UvA and Metabolic, has had two editions since July 2018, and was sold out both years. I was responsible for application review, curriculum design, and translating current research on circular cities to students, researchers, and practitioners. The programme uses Amsterdam as a living laboratory for analysis and action.
