Cities can never be fully sustainable

By: M.H. (Mustafa) Hasanov, MSc


In the last decades, accommodating sustainability in cities has become a mainstream environmental, economic, social and political issue. Ideally, a sustainable city creates an enduring way of life across the four domains of ecology, economics, politics and culture (James et al 2015). However, there is not a commonly agreed definition on what sustainable city should mean or how we can achieve complete sustainability in cities. What is the way to achieve sustainability in cities starts from understanding where sustainability stands at the moment.

In this seminar participants will get familiar with different conceptualizations of sustainability in cities by the use of examples across the globe and develop their own sustainable city framework with specific goals, objectives, actions and targets.
