This year, the International Week Built Environment will take place in combination with the International Conference CITC. We will welcome students and colleagues from all around the world to our School of Built Environment in Arnhem, the Netherlands. Our school and programs endorse the UN Sustainable Development Goals, so the International Week program will include many topics related to sustainability.
