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.
