City Makers’ Course Lviv

City Makers’ Course Lviv is a joined project of the Technical University Cottbus-Senftenberg (Germany), NGO “Stadtagenten” (Germany) and City Institute (Ukraine). The project goal is to educate professionals in the area of urban development. Ukrainian and international experts worked on the course creating a transdisciplinary communication network and setting-up professional communication between all issues of the city planning in Lviv. City Makers’ Course was established in 2018 and addressed sociologists, architectures, journalists, designers, engineers and civic activists. The primary impulse to organize the City Makers’ Course was the reaction to the absence of professionals in this field in Lviv. Another motivation was the lack of knowledge concerning strategic and participatory approaches in urban planning.
