About the course

The impacts of climate change on cities are a critical challenge in the twenty-first century affecting the ways of living and livelihoods of more than half the population on the planet. Floods, droughts, inadequate housing, food insecurity and energy crises are now part of the everyday life of urban citizens.

Our MSc Sustainable Cities offers you the opportunity to understand such environmental risks and how their impacts are unevenly distributed across geographies and social demographics, such as race, class, religion and gender.
