Sustainable Cities defined

May 15, 2008

There are numerous definitions of what a sustainable cty really means, however all of these have similar threads and lines of thought.

Regional Environmental Centre: “improving the quailty of life in a city, including ecological, cultural, political, institutional, social and economic components without leaving a burden on future generations”.

International for Sustainable Cities: “A sustainable city enhances the economic, social, cultural, political and environmental well-being of current and future generations”.

A number of other definitions can be found on REC’s site: Sustainable cities
