GSP 414 - Planning Sustainable Cities

Description: In this class we analyze what role planning plays in cities and how it affects communities in the context of sustainability, equity and climate change. We use geographic analysis to focus on environment, location, spatial arrangement, movement, and interactions vital to understanding cities as key drivers of social and environmental change in an increasingly urbanized and globalized world. Topics include climate action planning, transportation, affordable housing, urban development and design, renewable energy, as well as race, gender, and related social dimensions of planning. Co-convened with GSP 514. Letter grade only.
