Sustainable Urban Development in Local Contexts Globally

Course #: ENVSTY 130L

This survey course explores multiple dimensions of global sustainable urban development and provides strategies for planning, building, managing, and living in cities while protecting the environment. This survey of the contested nature of sustainable urbanization is accomplished through diverse topics which include but not limited to: the city and vulnerable populations; gender equal cities; strengthening resilience in cities to reduce the risk and the impact of disasters; the inter-connected crisis in infrastructure, urbanization, poverty, social injustice, and sustainable growth of smart cities. sustainable Urban Development in Local Contexts Globally will specifically and directly address race, gender, socio-economic class, and cultural (ethnicity and national origin) diversity as a central theme through a category of difference, as a system of relationality or intersectionality, and as a global/transnational system.
