Food isn't just what we eat. Eating is only one part of a vast global system that grows, processes, packages, markets, and ultimately discards food. Regrettably, today's industrial food system is failing not only our communities, but also our environment and our bodies. But there is an alternative recipe for food—a sustainable one—that promises to bring food and agriculture back into our communities so that they're more vibrant, vital, and healthy for everyone.

Urban revitalization is a process that is designed to turn a place around. How does a community embark on this process? This course will focus on four key aspects of revitalization: theoretical foundations, strategic planning, socio-economic viability, and urban design. Through a series of case studies, lectures, an interactive group exercise, and a site visit to Vancouver’s Chinatown—a heritage conservation district for the past 40 years—this course will illustrate the challenges and opportunities facing urban revitalization projects in both small and large communities.
