CE-UY 4043 Sustainable Cities

3 Credits
Considering the city as a building block for a more sustainable future, this course discusses sustainability metrics used, as well as the methods and tools for quantifying and achieving them. Particular attention will be given to climate action goals as one of the earliest manifestations of the push for sustainability.  Using globally established aspirational goals for sustainability, and those set by local agencies, students gain an understanding of needs assessment, planning and technical approaches for the acquisition and analysis of data relevant to the study of urban sustainability. Areas of study include energy and renewables, waste, land use, urban climate and ecology, patterns of activity, and community engagement. This course provides a perspective on the role of information for better understanding of the function and wellbeing of urban systems.
