Participants at the UrbanShift City Academy in Costa Rica

City Academy

Through comprehensive online courses and in-depth, in-person trainings, UrbanShift's City Academy equips local leaders and urban practitioners with knowledge and skills in eight areas related to integrated urban planning.

The City Academy consists of eight courses aimed at training city-level decision-makers and practitioners on key integrated planning themes. The course content will be available online for self-paced learning in 2023. UrbanShift will also offer in-person training based on the City Academy curriculum in each of the nine program countries. These two- to three-day training sessions will combine presentations and interactive exercises with the sharing of best practices. Cities will acquire in-depth knowledge on topics such as the circular economy and nature-based solutions; gain exposure to international experts; and connect with other cities working on similar issues.
