About
In 2017/18 academic year, the CANactions School offers a new advanced-level educational program for working professionals in the field of urban development. Based on the CANactions School methodology, the program is aimed at introducing strategic design and integrated planning approach to the real-life functioning of Ukrainian cities considered in a wider context of dynamic transformations in Central-Eastern Europe and developing countries at large.

For this, the School provides applied methods and tools for comprehensive and multiscale analysis of complex urban environment, which will allow our participants to develop effective scenario-based planning and design proposals, along with prototyping and moderating the implementation of pilot projects.

We cultivate teamwork and learning-by-doing approach in the educational process and offer an interdisciplinary perspective on the complex urban context thanks to the involvement of international experts and mentors, organizing local and international study trips and peer learning from other professionals in the group. Finally, we deepen the student's' ability to critically examine and describe interactions between people's activities and physical structures in the city through awareness of current urban challenges in a global perspective.

Program structure
The Advanced Studies in Integrated Urban Development (ASIUD) is a project-based program that consists of lectures and workshops, studio work in interdisciplinary groups, local and international study trips which are integrated into a step-by-step development of Graduation Projects (GPs). The projects will be identified and elaborated in multi-professional student groups under the supervision of an Education Program Team.

The participants will complete the program on a part-time basis over the 7 months (October 16, 2017 – April 20, 2018) that comprise 4 educational Blocks of 2 weeks each.

Each Block will be focused on a specific component of a student GP (such as an analysis, critical field study of foreign experience, vision and concept development, implementation strategy elaboration and testing). In the end of the ASIUD 2017/18 program, the participants will publicly present their GPs at the International Architecture Festival CANactions 2018.

The program is focused on the adaptation of EU urban development policies to the specific scale and real-life functioning of Ukrainian mid-sized cities. This is a practical course created for young professionals who lack the methods and tools of research-oriented design and strategic planning. Such cities as Zhytomyr, Poltava, Vinnitsa and Chernivtsi – as well as their connections with the surrounding settlements – will become the Program's case studies.

Detailed program
About
The CANactions School offers a new advanced-level study program focused on practical application of Integrated Urban Development principles outlined in the Leipzig Charter that serves as common ground of the EU urban development policies. Based on the CANactions School methodology, the program is aimed at adapting the concept of Integrated Urban Development to specific scale and real-life functioning of a mid-sized Ukrainian city. For this, we provide methods and tools for researchoriented design and strategic planning that will allow our students to conduct qualified research and design interventions that benefit local communities and Ukrainian society as a whole.

Our students will learn about various integrated urban development policy approaches with a major focus on several priority areas e.g. ensuring high-quality public spaces, improving energy efficiency of cities, combating climate change, enhancing residents' quality of life and attractiveness for businesses, promoting social and intercultural dialogue. A special section of the program will be devoted to managing deprived neighborhoods within a city in terms of poor quality of urban and natural environment, social exclusion and high unemployment. Here, we will be particularly focused on housing policies, low-cost methods of upgrading physical environment, efficient and affordable urban transport.

We cultivate teamwork and learning by doing approach in educational process and offer a multidisciplinary perspective on the complex urban context thanks to involvement of international tutors, fieldwork and peer learning from other professionals in the group. Finally, we deepen the student's' ability to critically examine and describe interactions between people's activities and physical structures in the city through awareness of current urban challenges in a global perspective.

Graduation Projects:

MAKE #GRAVITON GREAT AGAIN

CHERNIVTSI
The district of "Graviton" was founded in the ´70ies as part of the industrial development at the South Eastern fringe of Chernivtsi. Its industrial heart was the rocket factory. Today "Graviton" is a home to ca. 14,000 people. Applying the metaphoric image of a space ship, which just has landed in this heterogenic spatial and functional context of this part of the city would describe best its current appearance. While situated between closed and run down industrial areas, newly constructed low cost shopping centres, a regional bus hub and the airport in the South, as well as romantic "Bukovina" village houses and waste green land to the river Prut in the North (already sparkled with "modern" villas), "Graviton" has fairly kept its unique spatial and architectural identity. However the quarter faces typical challenges of East European transition, from decay of the housing stock, lacking acceptance and care of public spaces, demographic changes, unemployment due to abandoning nearby industries, etc. In addition, "Graviton" is very poorly linked by road infrastructure and public transport to the city (centre). Social and cultural infrastructure is missing or hopeless overcrowded.
OPEN VINNYTSIA – A PLACE FOR PEOPLE ON VINNYTSIA'S EASTERN RIVERBANK
Like most of the world's major cities, also Vinnytsia was built around an area of freshwater. The Southern Bug supplied the city with freshwater and goods. Eventually the river worked as its sewage and became polluted. This all created a less-than-idyllic setting and Vinnytsia – like many other cities - turned away from its river and its banks.

The Western part of Vinnytsia with its historic center grew densely towards the river creating an urban riverfront. With the construction of a railway station, the city made a leap over the river towards the East. Today surrounded by city fabric, the Eastern riverbank remained as undeveloped open space / green area.
RE-ACTIVATING ZHYTOMYR WATER TOWER: STRATEGIC DESIGN IN ACTION
А complex mix of challenges was a starting point for a CANactions School team focused on the strategic development of a former water tower in Zhytomyr – a middle-size Oblast center located about 131 kilometers to the West of Kyiv. According to the School methodology, the project group has been composed of the participants who represented three Ukrainian cities (Zhytomyr, Kyiv and Mykolaiv) and had various professional backgrounds (an architect, urban planner, project manager, and two economists). In addition, the team united employees of the city administration, urban development agency, and NGO creating a mixture of viewpoints on what the city is. From that perspective, the team was set-up in the same way as one would usually encounter in the real-life conditions of working in the urban development field.
POLTAVA RIVERFRONT: BUILDING CONSENSUS

Sometimes life just hits you upside the head with a crowbar and knocks you into a new reality. Such was the case with the Poltava Team and the project for the Poltava Riverfront.

What began as a rather linear educational experience to apply the urban tools and learning introduced during the CANaction's program to a specific spatial context, was unexpectedly transformed into a lesson in the harsh realities of Ukrainian urbanism – black-box, undemocratic decision-making for private gain, by politicians, captured by the business elite.
