additional remarks What ecological, economic and social challenges do cities face with regard to climate change and redensification? How can interdisciplinary approaches to solutions be developed? What are the interfaces/encounters from the different disciplines on the topic of "City & Water"? These and other questions are aimed at the core areas of a liveable city and this requires the interdisciplinary networking of planners, engineers, natural scientists, social scientists, economists and life scientists. The following contents will be dealt with in the course: - Identification of the networking of engineers, architects, natural scientists, social scientists, economists and life scientists. - Exploration of new, interdisciplinary basic knowledge - Exploration of interfaces/synergies and contradictions on the topic of the city through different disciplines. Disciplines - Identification, analysis and, if necessary, further development of relevant urban systems - Impulses for the transformation of our living environments - Development of new research questions - Development of new, theoretical approaches to solutions In the course of the lecture, representatives from various disciplines will present and discuss the following topics on the main theme of "City & Water": - Urban River Restoration - Urban Green Infrastructure - Climate Change - Flood Resilience - Sponge-City - Real Estate - Urban Agriculture - Urban Water Management - Water Rights– Water Governance - Water Quality in Megacities - Blue-Green Cities in Germany Within the specific topics, the following general topics are also addressed: - City - Landscape - Sociology - Regional Planning - Health - Water/Wastewater - Pollutants - Energy - Economics - Law - Climate Change - Natural Hazards - Ecology The contents and topics are taught in the form of lectures.
