Założenia (opisowo):

The modern world is becoming more and more urbanized. The processes of globalization, water and food shortages, and the lack of work in rural areas cause an increasing influx of people to cities. All these factors and many more set a new way of perceiving cities. Cities face increasing social, economic, environmental, and even technological challenges that pose the questions: "what does a green city really look like?" and "who are they intended for?"

A smart city is not only a place of economic and cultural life or a place of living for an urban community but also becomes an intelligent, self-regulating space, able to adapt to changing conditions. Smart city - a city that "lives and thinks" and ensures maximum welfare to its residents, taking into account environmental issues.

In this course, students will have the opportunity to explore social inequalities in the urban environment through the following topics: Transport and Mobility, Ecosystems, Food Systems, Water, Energy, Buildings and Infrastructure Waste / Resource Recovery, and Urban Management.

The aim of the course is to familiarize students with the smart-city concept as well as to present and analyze the most prosperous smart cities in various regions of the world. During the classes, we will analyze issues related to the urban environment (similarities and differences in approaches to the smart-city concept) based on case studies from different cities of the world, based on articles in scientific journals and textbooks.

An important task during the course will be to help students learn to critically evaluate sustainable development concepts from an urban perspective. Sustainability isn't something most people would be against, but that doesn't make it seamless. To discover the key political, social, environmental, economic, and technological challenges related to sustainable development.

When looking at green cities from a critical perspective, this course will explore how policies affect who has access to green amenities and healthy, inexpensive food sources, while examining cities' efforts to create more just, more sustainable urban communities. Finally, the course will touch on our own relationship with the built and natural environment, qualities we believe a green city should have.
