Urban Studies: Sustainable City
How can the concept of sustainability be used to understand the development of Toronto’s waterfront community?
Using the waterfront community as a model, students will assess the past, present and future manifestations of the community through the lens of sustainability.
By the end of the Urban Studies: Sustainable City program, students will:
- Understand the history of the waterfront community and the physical, social, economic and political forces that have shaped it.
- Develop a working definition of sustainability and identify the criteria by which we can assess sustainability.
- Conduct a site walk, looking for evidence to support the decision of whether the waterfront community is an example of sustainability in action.
