GO GLOCAL: New joint project with Namibia University of Science and Technology to start in July 2021

The Chair of International Urbanism is pleased to announce the start of a new research project:
“Making global goals locally concrete! A learning network between Windhoek, Namibia, and Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, for integrated settlement planning and clean energy – GO GLOCAL”.

Project description
The joint project GO GLOCAL aims to establish a community of practice in an international framework, a unique learning network between Windhoek, Namibia, and Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg. It seeks to identify ways of adapting climate-relevant Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to the needs of the local level, while ensuring that civil society is heard on an equal footing. Co-productive approaches to SDG monitoring at local level will be tested combining both qualitative and quantitative data. Moreover, a new generation of practitioners will be trained in applying integrated and co-productive planning approaches through innovative learning and teaching formats.

From April to September 2021, the project collaborates with the ASA University Global Program and enables four students to participate in the international research project.

Project duration
01/07/2021 – 31/10/2022

The project is funded by the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts (MWK).
