Dr. Linda Shi (Cornell University, USA) reflects on the opportunities and difficulties for urban programme curriculum change, within higher education models such as those in the USA. She highlights the importance of inter-disciplinary urban curricula and research, which critically explores the crucial links between global challenges such as climate change and social injustice in order to create novel, integrated solutions. The discussion questions how radical education innovation should be, what can feasibly be achieved with the tools available, and what kind of knowledge, skills, values and dispositions graduates should be equipped with in order to transform ideals for a better society into institutional realities.
