Today, it’s easy to get the impression that only new technologies can solve environmental problems. But in fact many tools and techniques of the past can help achieve sustainability goals. The built environment is an important example, given the massive energy usage, potentially toxic materials, waste generation, and disposal costs of new construction. As preservationists like to say, the greenest building is the one that’s already built. In this course, students will learn about the history of the preservation movement and its many connections with environmentalism. Case studies and field trips will combine local history with hands-on experiences in historic preservation.
