Students will study and practice sustainable city design while conducting field-based research on eco-tourism, environmental education, and urban nature conservation in Hong Kong.  Participants will collaborate with NGOs and colleagues from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) in the exploration and examination of the rich ecosystems of Hong Kong's vast greenspace. This program offers a unique opportunity to apply social-ecological theory in the construction of an eco-tourism master plan, which may include the layout of an urban nature preserve, sustainable housing plan, and environmental education curriculum.  This course is open to students from various academic disciplines and is structured to facilitate interdisciplinary cooperation in the creation of sustainable urbanism.
