This five-week course aims to improve the knowledge and skills of Slovakian traffic and urban planning professionals in designing and implementing integrated and sustainable cycling infrastructure. The original English version of Designing the Cycling City (DtCC) course will be translated to Slovakian and customised to reflect specific Slovakian experiences.
The course includes both online and face-to-face components and will be created by Dutch urban design consultancy Humankind and Slovak NGO Smart Cities Klub. Topics will include citizen participation, road safety, and cycling infrastructure design, and the final project will ask students to create and present a plan that transforms the street they live on.
Participants will have the opportunity to take an online tour in a Dutch city to learn about the cycling infrastructure and its integration into urban design. Dutch experts will also present potential solutions and ideas and exchange knowledge about best practices of designing and implementing cycling infrastructure in The Netherlands.
