This course is a second introduction to various innovators and initiatives at the bleeding edge of urban sustainability and connected technology. It is a look at the challenges and practical responses related to urban sustainability through the theme of urban social equity. For those interested, a separate course in this series focuses on real world examples within two other key urban innovation themes: smart cities and transportation.
Course material is based on case studies, seminars, and conference sessions from the Meeting of the Minds international network and annual summit. Lectures are presented by topic experts; presentation slides and other helpful resources are included where applicable.
Optional multiple choice quiz questions follow the lectures for those students wishing to test their new knowledge or obtain a course completion certificate. No commitment is required to do the entire course. Students can proceed at their own pace and may view as many - or as few - of the lectures as they choose.
