ABSTRACT  Full text (pdf)

Urban areas are formed aiming to satisfy multiple expectations of their citizens. Among the most significant expectations are resources availability, related to existential needs, efficiency in communication and satisfaction of other contemporary civilization and cultural needs. However, pursuance to create conditions for those needs satisfaction necessarily leads to high level of urban area construction. Thus, sort of paradox appears: aspiration to improvement of living conditions leads to negative effects which jeopardize the health and lives of urban population. This fact requires holistic approach, i.e. consideration of all aspects of life’s needs of urban population in order to provide their long term sustainability. This paper aims to consider some aspects of urban areas sustainability relative to blue green cities philosophy. 


Key words: urban areas, sustainability, efficiency, blue green cities, complexity.
