In this activity, students learn to properly define sustainability and apply this to the context of Montreal and then more narrow in scope to a single neighborhood.
After reading Montreal’s 10 objectives in their 2016-2020 sustainability plan, students act as the mayor to their chosen neighborhoods and research the socio-dynamics of the area in order to come up with their 10 objectives. They are then asked to peer review the plans of other groups and address feedback they were given.
The instructor then gives the students the actual sustainability plan for the neighborhood and students are asked to discuss and write a report on the similarities, differences, weaknesses, and strengths between the two plans.
