How do we reconcile human health and ecological living in our cities today with the challenges of air, land and water pollution, the automobile, social problems, and zoning restrictions? How do we define and create “well-planned” communities? How can we meet the needs of community, families and individuals of all ages? This course explores the answers to those and many more fundamental community planning questions.
Topics include new urbanism, transit-oriented development, co-housing, commons solutions, ecohoods, pocket neighborhoods, transition movement and its principles.
This course conveys 15 Building Biology Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
