Urban Sustainability Appraisal Tools
Over half of the world’s population now lives in cities, where built environment decisions endure for decades, impacting social and economic prospects for generations. A new class of green rating and urban sustainability assessment tools has emerged that gauge equity, resiliency, and resource efficiency at urban scales. In “Urban Sustainability Appraisal Tools,” course instructor Eliot Allen teaches tools and options for evaluating community and neighborhood sustainability and addresses the importance of urban sustainability. The track examines how sustainability assessment tools can be used to leverage expert knowledge, improve local decision-making, and monitor progress toward urban sustainability initiatives. Each course in this track is approved for CNU-A and AICP CM credit.
