How to design cities in the times of climate change and peak oil1 has taken urban design and planning schools worldwide by surprise. Despite the myriad courses on sustainability at schools of urban design and planning in Europe, the USA and Australia, none offers a comprehensive yet specific programme so that a student can learn:

How climate change and peak oil relate directly to urban design

How to design a city for a post-petroleum age which can also mitigate and adapt to climate change

How to apply such knowledge to the design of a large-scale urban design project

How to gauge whether the planning regulations and development controls governing the project can make such design possible.
