About the Course

The course consists of two parts:

i) The first part examines the role of human spatial mobility (e.g. transportation and ICT-use) as an integral part of urban and regional development, land use and accessibility. This includes theories of the drivers and limits of mobility growth, how mobility dependencies are built into people’s everyday life and the structures of society, as well as the relationships between different forms of physical and virtual mobility.

ii) The second part focuses how to achieve sustainable levels of mobility. It focuses how spatial mobility involves environmental, geographical and social problems, e.g., social exclusion according to gender, class etc. The course covers knowledge about planning strategies and planning measures to adapt the transportation systems and travel behaviour to environmental standards - and how individuals respond to various measures.
