Cities and Sustainability endeavors to expose students to the methods of implementing environmentally sustainable policies in big cities across the United States. The course will begin with an overview of the various tools at the disposal of American municipalities, exploring the various ways that policies are adopted and then implemented. The course will also review sustainable development and transportation policy as well as agency management. Students will be given the tools to provide political, economic, and critical analysis of different sustainable policy initiatives across the United States through a case study approach. This course is geared towards providing advocates with the tools they need to promote sustainable policies.
