Local Sustainability: main tools and practices

A brief description of the undergraduate minor, concentration or certificate:

This course allows senior technicians to update their reference knowledge in the light of the new challenges facing them in the context of city policy and especially the framing of policies for sustainable cities, for example under the Sustainable Cities 2020 "(Council of Ministers Resolution 61/2015).

On the other hand, the way in which information is commonly made available, which segments knowledge related to land planning issues and almost never allows its reading as an integrated management model, justified the development of this training plan, where the city, the building , energy and transport are articulated as a single, holistic process that can best meet the needs of citizens.
