Description
This course is designed to provide landscape architects with continuing education
credits for occupational license renewal. Sustainable or universal design will become increasingly important to human comfort and survival on earth. It is important to identify the causes of ecosystem and ecosystem disruption by existing human practices.

The course identifies sources of ecosystem disruption by human development. It will
be a challenge to create the changes necessary and implement regenerative design into conventional human activities. By understanding the cyclic regenerative process of natural ecosystems we can emulate efficient and effective changes very quickly. However, major changes in energy policies may become mandatory.
