Sustainable Cities: Politics and Equity
This course introduces divergent definitions of the concept of sustainability and examines who gets to decide what is sustainable. It investigates how cities are achieving various components of urban sustainability. Emphasis is placed on politics and decision-making, and how risks, benefits and "rights" are distributed across society. Using environmental justice and social equity lenses, the course examines how demographic change, poverty and wealth influence the types of strategies cities adopt and who benefits.
