Urban Invaders - where to put what.

General description

Urban areas are packed with people, and resources are scarce. Everybody pushes their own interests, and social conflicts arise. Do YOU know where to put what? Want to dive into the complex world of managing regional land-use? Do you want to know more about requirements of settlement development, traffic planning and recreation areas? Let's take the interdisciplinary challenge! Learn to create a qualitative environment which is economically effective, ecologically sustainable and socially balanced!

But we ask more of you than just attending the course. We want you to discover the adorable city of Vienna and make friends with your fellows at crazy parties. We will invade your heart with waltz and wine, and make you climb our luscious mountains on the weekend trip. So, are you up to that challenge? To get better.. to get BEST! Amaze us with your unique personality!
