Water, water everywhere—even in the city. Developing water-sensitive urban areas is rapidly becoming a key factor in sustainability, but it’s a challenging topic with a lot of moving parts. FutureLearn has partnered with Australia’s Monash University  to offer a free online course for anyone interested in learning more about the complex relationship between water and sustainable cities. The seven-week course, entitled “Water for Liveable and Resilient Cities,” seeks to educate people about methods for protecting waterways and wetlands within urban spaces , as well as reducing flood risk and damage. The course also includes discussions on how to create public spaces for the purpose of harvesting, cleaning, and recycling water . Check out Future Learn ‘s website for this and a lot of other exciting—and free—online courses. + Future Learn  Image via Shutterstock . The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
