STUDY ABROAD SUMMER 2019: BICYCLE TRANSPORTATION

STUDY ABROAD SUMMER 2019: DESIGNING CITIES FOR PEOPLE ON BIKE

Interested in experiencing what it is like to be on a bike, in a city, and feel completely normal? Interested in how that can be done through design, policy, and social change?  Then come be part of the 2019 Bicycle Transportation Study Abroad course, hosted by the University of Oregon.  Space will be limited to 13-17 students, anyone enrolled at a U.S. university can enroll, partial scholarships will be available, and the sooner you express your interest the better.

  • Tentative dates: July 5 – July 30
  • We will stay in Copenhagen, Odense, Amsterdam, and Utrecht
  • You do not need to be an avid cyclist or even know much about how cities are designed for people on bikes.  You just need to be very interested in experiencing and learning about it and putting your knowledge into action afterward.  We do bike in cities every day, though, so you need to be able to ride a bike.
  • Students from multiple universities, multiple disciplines, and both undergraduate and graduate students have participated.  We create a great community and this diversity is a strength.
  • This class is led by Professors Marc Schlossberg and Rebecca Lewis (University of Oregon, City Planning), and will be the fifth time this class has been offered.
  • More information about the program and how to express any initial interest you may have is here: https://blogs.uoregon.edu/schlossb/study-abroad-bicycle-transportation/.
