“Actors of Urban Change” is a Europe-wide program by the Robert Bosch Stiftung in cooperation with MitOst e.V. It aims to achieve sustainable and participatory urban development through cultural activities. This is carried out by strengthening the competencies for cross-sector collaboration among actors from the cultural sphere, the administration, and the private sector who form teams of three committed to implementing a project in their city. Using culture as a tool and context, the projects might address a broad range of social, political and environmental challenges related to urban change.
The faculty has a strong ambition to develop urban research and education for sustainable cities and communities that can contribute to a low carbon society. We are looking for a Head of Department of Urban Design and Planning willing to take the lead in this strategic field. This is a full time 4 years position.
