Training: Urban Governance Training – Resilient and Smart Cities

May 15 - May 28


The Hague Academy for Local Governance is accepting applications for its in-person Urban Governance Training: Resilient and Smart Cities.

This course targets professionals engaged in urban governance and development, including city planners and urban policymakers, drawn from various sectors such as national, regional, and local governments, NGOs, knowledge institutes, and donor organisations. It aims to explore frameworks, strategies, and tools to enhance cities’ resilience, enabling them to withstand and recover from internal and external shocks, maintain essential functions, and adapt to continuous change.

Additionally, the course delves into smart city solutions, investigating the role of data and innovative technologies in improving city system efficiency and fostering urban resilience. It also examines the formulation of scenarios for inclusive cities, applying the principle of Leaving No One and No Place Behind, and discusses the ethical considerations of smart city projects, including potential issues like the digital divide, cybersecurity, and privacy concerns.

Lastly, the course addresses how ‘post-COVID’ cities can leverage technologies to reinforce physical interactions, shared systems, services, and spaces, shaping the concept of ‘blended cities’ in the future.

The course will take place in The Hague, Netherlands, from 15 May 2024 to 28 May 2024. 

The course fee is € 3,595. This includes all training related costs as well as drinks and warm lunches during the training days. Group discounts are available if you participate with three or more colleagues.

After this course, you will receive a professional certificate of completion from The Hague Academy for Local Governance.
