Mobility and Urban Liveability in Palestine
Cosmopolis VUB with Latitude and the Department of Urban and Regional Development of UAntwerpen in collaboration with the An-Najah University are about to conclude the first workshop on mobility and urban development in two central locations of Nablus and Ramallah. In Nablus, the research focused on the urban east-west axis, with the aim of organising public transport more efficiently, reducing traffic congestion and improving the quality of urban space. In Ramallah, it concentrates on the central squares and market area, where pedestrians clash with car dominated spaces.
After a series of intense site visits and dense lectures from local and international speakers, students from the three universities are working intensively at the Center for Urban and Regional Planning of An Najah University in Nablus where they will exhibit the first results in an instant-exhibition.
