Planning the Cycling City

This graduate level programme unravels urban cycling from a critical and interdisciplinary perspective. We draw on historical and current events and thinking and engage with top Dutch and international experts and leader. Students learn a host of essential skills that support meaningful understanding, developing and fostering of cycling cities.

Together we examine the impacts of history, policy, infrastructure, planning, and culture within the context of urban cycling in the Netherlands. Next to this, the programme invites students to bring and share their personal views and experiences on cycling cities.

As the world’s cycling capital, Amsterdam offers a premier environment for engaging with all of this.
