ENVRES 212: Cities and Sustainability: Current Issues, Policy, and Law

Cities are on the front lines of solving many of society's sustainability problems, from advancing green buildings and clean energy, to preparing for the effects of climate change. With a diminishing role of the federal government on environmental policy and regulation, it is up to sub-nationals like states and cities to lead innovation and deployment of clean energy, resilience strategies, water management, and more. This class will explore the evolving role of cities in advancing sustainability from the lens of law, policy, planning, and governance. Some of the topics we will discuss in-depth include climate mitigation, clean energy, green buildings, climate adaptation and resilience, water supply and reuse, land use and transportation, and more. Case studies will focus on U.S. cities with some emphasis on California. Overarching themes across all content areas include legal constraints of city authority, governance, socioeconomic tradeoffs, and the roles of various types of institutions in developing, advancing, and advocating for local policy change. Elements used in grading: Attendance, Class Participation, Written Assignments, Exam. Crosslisted with LAW 2512

ENVRES 246: Measuring Success in Environmental Messaging

How do we understand the impacts of environmental messaging on its target audience, and ensure that it provides compelling and informative content for education, outreach, and behavior change? Once different messaging campaigns have been attempted, how do we evaluate their success? This course teaches students practical social science approaches to assess the efficacy of environmental messaging campaigns by real environmental nonprofit organizations. As a continuation of [course # for Psychological Insights for Science Communication], students will work with partner nonprofit organizations to analyze the performance of campaigns designed in the previous quarter, and identify the most salient and motivational aspects of the campaigns that best predicted successful and meaningful outcomes. The course will also focus on how to evaluate outcomes across heterogeneous populations, to better understand how messaging may impact a diverse audience. The statistical computing language R will be used in the course, but prior programming experience is not required. Prerequisite: ENVRES 245 : Psychological Insights for Science Communication or consent of instructor required.
