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 module 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 Sustainable Blueprint into their communities.
