This is an introductory course to environmental and sustainability planning. In only eight weeks, we will rapidly review the essential concepts that planners should know about environmental and sustainability planning. As a survey course, our focus will be on major themes and core principles, rather than detailed or technical analysis that might be offered in a more specialized course. However the advantage of reviewing multiple environmental topics is that we will be able to consider the connections across sustainability problems. The course has also been updated to consider the impacts of COVID-19 on sustainability and the changes we may see in the post-COVID city.
