Program listed on the National Registry of Quality Graduate Programs of the National Science and Technology Council (CONACYT, in its initials in Spanish), accredited as in develop Program.
Cities around the world have grown three times faster than their real needs, and the situation in Mexico is no different. We are experiencing the effects of formal urban proliferation on the outskirts of cities and an exponential growth in the use of cars; consequently, the quality of public spaces has suffered as they have lost their vocation of areas for social interaction, thus creating conditions of inequality, insecurity, pollution, inaccessibility, and a lack of identity in urban areas.
In the face of a urban model in crisis, ITESO, in conjunction with the Department of Habitat and Urban Development, promotes graduate programs in Sustainability that address the growing environmental and social deterioration that urban spaces are undergoing at the local, national, and global levels.
The Master's Degree in Sustainable Cities and Public Spaces encourages the development of innovative and participatory projects that address social and spatial issues in urban areas and implement collaborative management for decision-making and the planning and design of intervention projects in public spaces, with the aim of achieving a sustainable habitat.
The objectives of this program focus on:
- Critically reflecting on the complex reality of today's society, particularly as it relates to the deterioration of human wellbeing and the natural environment
- Exercising responsible leadership to stimulate action and promote change from a sustainability perspective
- Implementing comprehensive solutions from different fields of knowledge, including practical and scientific applications
- Formulating indicators and public policies to promote visible and tangible results and to evaluate the dissemination of their progress, achievements, and learning.
