Training activity is equal to 28 hours of overall commitment (7 hours per day) and students are expected to attend minimum 21 hours in order to receive a certificate of attendance and 3 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System). In case of insufficient attendance or arguable behaviour, the course director may decide not to issue an attendance certificate.

The Summer School Urban Poverty. The praxis of planning in unequal cities is an opportunity for opening theory and practices of research and urban planning to issues of poverty and inequality in our cities. It will take advantage from the collaboration of experts in different, but complementary, disciplines and it foresees three while intertwined parts: (i) Theory; (ii) Analysis & case studies; (iii) Experiences & proposals.
