EA 165 PZ -Resource Depletion and Ghost Towns: The Built Environment and Natural Resources

Institution: Pitzer

Description: Resource Deplention and Ghost Towns: The Built Environment and Natural Resources. This course examines the relationship between the built environment, natural resources, and sustainability in the demise of settlements. We begin with an overview of debates surrounding the role of natural resources in the development and decline of towns and cities. We will also look at “sustainability success stories,” such as Curitiba. To what extent can natural resource use depletion be blamed for the creation of spaces called “ghost towns”? This course includes three required field trips: one day-long field trip, one two-day, and one three-day.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
