URP 532 – Sustainability and Social Change


This course emphasizes the local and regional scale of sustainability; the role of planning, land policy, local economic development, and regional planning; and the relationship between human settlement patterns and environmental consequences. We examine the conflicts between local economic development, environmental protection and social justice -- and planning strategies to resolve these conflicts. We will engage "sustainability" both as a useful organizing principle for planning and as a problematic concept to be challenged and updated.
