We are offering several online courses about Sustainable Urbanism (using the URSOS tool, of course).

At the moment, we are offering the courses in Spanish language, but if anyone is interested in receive an English course, we can talk about that. (please, write us at info@ursos.es)

The course is based on three fundamental bases:

  • Short theoretical instructions about the concepts that will be used.
  • Acquiring skills to manage the software.
  • Execute examples of modeling and improvement.
