The Sustainable Cities Lab will provide the opportunity to learn and utilize urban design tools while competing in a global sustainability competition to design green and thriving city neighborhoods that work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and improve quality of life for local communities. Students will apply their skills to create an entry for the Students Reinventing Cities competition (https://www.c40reinventingcities.org/en/students/). The course will support student development of knowledge and skills related to this competition, focusing on applications of urban design and sustainable urbanism concepts and principles. Various workshops will be utilized for training in design tools, graphics, data visualization, and other methods necessary to create a winning entry. Basic knowledge of GIS or comparable skill in graphic design or illustration is required.
