The TELLme (Training for Education, Learning and Leadership towards a new MEtropolitan discipline) Project addresses the urban and architectural disciplines at HE level, on the assumption that cities in the 21st century are the crucial field of complex issues derived by the extreme urbanization and the HEIs have a social responsibility in providing solutions. According to the UN projection, The world’s urban population will double in one generation and by 2050, most major cities will become large metropolitan areas. The TELLme Project is a response to this growing demand for metropolitan competence, by helping to shape the discipline, develop tools, and training new  with multidisciplinary perspectives.
