This course will introduce students to sustainable development using real-world design challenges in a supported environment. Through a project based learning approach, students will examine the impact of their future disciplines on people, place and the planet. Students will learn the theory of sustainable development and climate change, and then using these principles will examine solutions to real life problems through case studies, taking into consideration the environment, social and economic implications of proposed solutions. Students will explore issues of interdisciplinary and cross sectoral engagement, risks of maladaptation, and the role of technology.
