Is This Land Made for You and Me? (APA2337.01)

Brian Campion, Susan Sgorbati, Donald Campbell, & Andrew Schlatter

This course will address Land Use in Vermont through the perspectives of land as a geographical and historical resource, land as the policies and practices of management and stewardship of public and private property, and land as components of the built environment, specifically looking at the Bennington region and Bennington College. Issues of racial and economic justice, as well as public policy and zoning/planning will all be examined. Steps for a more equitable, sustainable, and progressive use of the land in our region and at the College will be generated for the future.
