Urban adaptation to resilient futures in informal settlements
Different activities carried out or planned by the partners are an opportunity to engage participants. UNESCOSOST offers doctoral programs at UPC, and plans the insertion of the approaches and reflections from this program into curricular contents, academic activities, and implementation projects.
The Universidad La Salle in Bogotá offers research works in the undergraduate programs of architecture and urban planning and a Master's Degree in Habitat and Territory Management. These include guided field trips with academic groups, international academic events, and an elective course on these themes open for local and international visiting scholars, when applicable (UREx IRES 2020 team is welcome to ask for the availability of these activities according to their calendar in Bogota).
The URExSRN is currently offering an international experience for one undergraduate and three graduate students to conduct eight to ten weeks of onsite research in an urban community facing climate extremes in Bogotá, Colombia. The experience will support the collaborative research promoted jointly by the Arizona State University’s UREx SRN, UNESCOSOST and the Universidad de La Salle in Bogotá, Colombia.
