Course Description

This one semester course will address current topic relevant to the practice and profession of planning.


Starting from a base of critical thought, this course examines the theory and popular debate about why our climate is changing, then expands to explore how the change is manifested on a global and local scale. Building on the observed change, this course also discusses forecasted environmental effects and explores how, as a society, we can best adapt to and mitigate the change.
