Instructor(s):  Tobias Rittner
Course Description: Course: Financing Sustainability
3 Credit hours.

Description: Sustainability has become a common buzzword and central focus of the planning profession over the past decade. More than ever, cities are focused on supporting planning efforts that encourage long-term growth that is measured and thoughtful in strengthening the economy and the environment while support equitable solutions to community challenges. Nevertheless, communities continue to struggle with solutions that address the costs associated with sustainability, ultimately resulting in limited or constrained outcomes. This course examines sustainability through perhaps the most important lens, financing. The primary focus is two important elements of green infrastructure - food systems and clean energy. While distinctly different sectors, this infrastructure is very difficult to finance conventionally and requires unique approaches and planning solutions. Students explore the systems and industry behind food and energy and develop comprehensive roadmaps that communities can use to build robust and financially supported sustainability systems for food and energy.
