After a review of current sustainability initiatives in the Department of Defense as well as service-specific goals requirements, the course will examine U.S. military installations from the perspective of sustainable cityscapes and ecosystems. It will explore state-of-the-art sustainability problem solving and systems-thinking techniques as applied to unique energy conservation, indoor environmental quality, resource use, and other environmental challenges posed by the military mission.
