SUST 630 - METHODS & PRACTICES OF SUSTAINABILITY
Sustainability does not occur in a vacuum. Its context is the myriad problems that exist at the meeting point of society, economy and environment. Identifying, addressing and monitoring these problems is essential for the achievement of sustainability. Over time, it involves constant course correction to keep these three realms in balance. Steering requires an ongoing flow of information, a way to analyze and understand it, a way to disseminate it and a way to act on it. This core course for the second term in the MASS program is intended to complement and run concurrently with the Organizational and Social Process course. Methods and Practices of Sustainability focuses on appropriate means for gathering information to support sustainable analysis and interventions and actions as well as how to use community information to build agreement and consensus. An emphasis on particpatory approaches to documentation, discourse, valuing and decision-making is given, informed by the national Environmental Policy Act, the public participation methodology beginning in the 1970s and participatory design methods. The focus in the companion course is on the community dynamics involved. Here the question is how participation is accurately and adequately informed.
