Builds upon the core principles of sustainable community development by applying them to real-life “messy, wicked” sustainability challenges and place-based evidence decision-making. Includes a residency period that is hands-on and highly experiential. Designed to explore issues and barriers, dialogue and consult, and convene public forums and presentations in the examination of ecological, social and economic imperatives of a particular community. The very principles of sustainable community development: collaboration, creativity, integration, adaptation, diversity, and regeneration, will guide the learning. Residency location will vary by offering. Prerequisite: CMDV500.
