The module aims to outline and evaluate the conceptual debates relating to the terms ‘sustainability’ and ‘sustainable development’ and discuss what is meant by the ‘good city’ and evaluate different approaches to the production of ideal or ‘good city’ form. In the module students will analyse the different meanings of urban sustainability through the context of examples of the planning and management of cities.
