In this set of activities, students are introduced to sustainability in the urban context. They will describe their vision of a sustainable city, identify the challenges facing cities, and discover the ecosystem services provided by nature. Sustainable cities are much more than places where humans and nature coexist productively: they are cities in which all people—regardless of race, color, income, and so on—have equal access to a healthy environment in which they can flourish.
