EV3010 - Planning for Sustainable Communities in a Changing Environment
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
The subject seeks to provide students with advanced capacities to understand the challenges
that face planning for sustainable regions and settlements. It explores a number of
key problems for settlements: sustainable management of marine and terrestrial resources,
water use and allocation, regional sustainability, resilient communities, implications
of climate change, carbon economy, food miles and the food supply, nature conservation
and development. Case studies deal with a range of examples from land and sea environments
of north Queensland. A key component of this subject is a 5 days field trip to experience
firsthand the sustainable planning challenges for remote communities of Far North
Queensland. The field trip will provide students with opportunities to meet and hear
from key members of the regional business community and relevant government departments,
as well as Traditional Owners who are actively involved in the ongoing management
of, and planning for, their country. There are additional charges for this subject;
please contact the College for details.
