Vancouver
The third largest city in Canada, Vancouver is a huge metropolis but has the smallest carbon footprint of any major North American city. Explore the complex and often conflicting relationship between the natural environment and urban development through the investigation of environmental sustainability in mining, green technology and engineering, and the preservation of wildlife and natural ecosystems. As you enjoy incredible city views and the natural sites Vancouver has to offer, examine how principals of sustainability and conservation can be applied in an urban setting.
