[We] are the makers of our own state and…individuals who realize the fact
need not, ought not, to wait for collective action.
— Mahatma Gandhi
Sustainable urbanism is a paradigm shift in urban development with the goal of creating urban environments with minimal environmental impact. By reducing dependence on automobiles and building energy efficient homes and commercial buildings from non-toxic and recycled materials, greenhouse gas emissions are reduced and more healthy environments are created both indoors and out. UHD students explored this issue through their research projects and volunteer activities with Habitat for Humanity.
