Course

Course on Green Cities: A Sustainable Future

This class will review concepts of sustainable urbanism and the systems that comprise it: Energy, Waste, Water, Food, Transportation and Open Space. Our main focus, which reflects its methodology, is based on two premises: (a) the role and importance of Place as an impediment or facilitator of urban sustainability and (b) the fundamental part played by citizens’ participation in the commitment to sustainable policies and practice. Through these perspectives, students will comprehend the principles informing sustainable urban planning and the socio-cultural, economic, and political challenges faced by its promoters. Our approach is both global and local – we will use Perugia as our case-context while considering broader issues and analyzing case-studies both in Europe and all over the world , to compare approaches, goals, and policies.
