The Pacific Northwest is a beautiful part of the US to learn about sustainability practices due to its commitment to the environment through public policy, education, and social movements. Seattle will be used as a footprint to show how some significant cities are implementing sustainability movements. Students will leave the course with a well rounded view of past policies and impacts on the environment and the future of sustainability.
