The Swedish Council for Higher Education has decided to approve another year of the SLU Landscape exchange with Buenos Aires: Critical Urbanities.

The decision, that was announced June 18, means that the Linneaus Palme Partnership programme between SLU Landscape and FADU-UBA Urban Design has been approved with funds of SEK 330 400.

As in previous years this budget allows SLU to send two teachers and two students to Buenos Aires, and to welcome two teachers and two students from over there, to continue the development of interdisciplinary landscape and urban design education while including Global South and Global North perspectives.
