Work methods

Transportation and cycling were one of the teams in the Poznán pilot course. Their job was figure out how to promote low carbon transportation in Poznán. They choose to tackle this with cycling.

Their working was based on visits. First, they got some general information about low carbon society, and after that site-specifically.  After that, they used their actual working methods which were real-life case study visits which lasted two days. Based on this study visits students composed their project proposal which was presented at the end of the pilot course.
