This course explores the initiatives, programs and policies being implemented at the local and regional government level to promote sustainability and address climate change. Together we will investigate diverse policy pathways from national and local case studies. Students will work in groups with community partners in the upstate New York region to solve complex challenges facing local governments and organizations trying to enact meaningful climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies, and sustainability-related policy. These projects will be informed by different theoretical orientations to sustainability, allowing students to gain practical experience in civic engagement and policymaking.
