Exploring Healthy Urban Active Communities

NOTE: This course has been cancelled for Fall 2020.

The goal of this course is to explore the interconnections between active living, natural spaces and the built urban environment, with an emphasis on active transportation, outdoor recreational activities, civic ecology, urban parks and green spaces, land use and public policy. Students will participate in an expedition-style learning experience, spending a week living, traveling and learning together as a group. This is an experiential course of study whereby students will engage with a variety of community members, leaders, elders and activists, as well as partake in an array of outdoor and physical activities.

The course dates will be from WED SEPT 2 until WED SEPT 9 (2021) (as well as a two-hour participatory event in mid-October).

  • Sessions will start at 9:00 a.m. on SEPT 2 in KHS 202 for a pre-trip information and preparation day.
  • All students will depart at noon on SEPT 2 from the SKHS Building and return to campus on SEPT 9 at 1:00 p.m.

There will be an additional tuition cost of $400.

  • As of Open Enrolment in August, this course cannot be added or dropped on-line.
  • If a student needs to drop KNPE 338, they can do so by contacting the SKHS UG Office or the Faculty of Arts & Science.  However, dropping KNPE 338 in August or September will involve a financial penalty as the course is held in the week before the start of Fall Term and a two-hour participatory event in mid-October.
