Web site : Locally Organized Transition of Urban Sustainable Spaces

Funded by Erasmus+

The LOTUS project in a few words  :

  • Start: 1st of September 2019

  • Funding period: 27 months

  • Goal: Development of an interdisciplinary teaching concept for urban planners and developers taking climate change into account 

The challenges of a changing climate increase the need to support municipalities, citizens and companies in the process towards a zero-carbon future. The transition to a carbon neutral city or municipality cannot be achieved by local decision makers alone but must include a multitude of actors. The cooperation of public and private stakeholders, working in a complex set of interactions embedded within a wider regional, national and European context, is needed to manage a transformation on this scale. As educators of future municipal decision makers, urban planners and architects, the partners of the LOTUS project have set themselves the goal to facilitate this transformation by closing the educative gap on urban and regional energy transition in and between the different disciplines.
The LOTUS-project aims to design the tools needed by teachers in higher education to fulfill this role by designing an interactive curriculum, which will allow Europe’s future city planners, architects and administrative staff to guide communities to a greener future and transfer successful concepts across borders and national contexts.
