Urban planners develop land use plans and programs for cities
VIRTUAL JOB SHADOW
Welcome to your first day on the job! Watch this video to see what a day in the life of an urban planner is like.
STEP 1: To start, choose one aspect of sustainability to focus on for your city: water usage, land usage, or pollution.
STEP 2: Research online to learn more about this sustainability topic. What are issues with this? What are other cities doing to be more sustainable related to this topic?
STEP 3: Based on what you learned, make a plan for your city! What will your city have/do to improve sustainability related to the topic you chose (land, pollution, or water)?
STEP 4: Then create a diagram or model of your sustainable city to show how it would improve this aspect of sustainability.
STEP 5: Share a picture or video of your city model in the Student Showcase to build your resume and show people a city of the future!
