BOCEP: Introduction to Environmental Planning (CM | 14.0)

February 23, 2011 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

2/23-4/2  14 CM Credits

Using land use planning measures to respond to advance sustainability and resilience of both the natural and built environment requires at least a basic understanding of the environment and of ecological principles. The American Planning Association has recently established a Certified Environmental Planner credential in recognition of the expertise required in these areas. This will be a seminar style course encouraging interaction and shared knowledge among participants in identifying planning measures that are appropriate to address the relationships between and among land uses and ecological systems. The course will begin with an introduction to how the environment works and how to find and use environmental data. Participants will choose an issue regarding air, water, land or other environmental impacts and examine how planning solutions mitigate or merely shift these impacts. We will conclude with examinations of policies on sustainability, climate change and other topics of interest to course members. We will interact using discussion boards, webinars and online chats scheduled at mutual convenience.
