Cities and Nature
Dr Toh Tai Chong
Must urbanisation come at the expense of the environment? Using insights from urban planning, ecology, engineering, sociology and public policy, this course focuses on how cities can integrate with nature to create sustainable communities which minimise humans’ ecological footprint. Students will explore the innovations utilised by different cities around the world. Using Singapore as a case study, students will be able to apply the concepts outlined in the Singapore Green Plan into their communities.
We would like to encourage everyone who enjoyed using CAPT Courses (previously known as CAPTMods) to contribute back to the community by writing reviews for courses that you have taken before. Your efforts will go a long way in building up a vibrant and rich CAPT academic environment!
1. Because the experience of each course will differ according to the professor teaching the course, at the start of your review, please state the semester taken and the name of the professor who taught the course in that semester.
2. Other students will read your review to get an idea of what taking the course will be like and this may affect their course registration choices. As such, please maintain objectivity when leaving your review and take note that we will go through a moderation process before reviews get posted.
3. The experiences alleged in these reviews have not been verified by CAPT or CAPT Courses. Please take all anecdotes with a grain of salt.
