Abstract

People are now realizing how essential sustainability is to the future of our planet. Unfortunately, many mistake being “green” with being sustainable when in fact “green” only represents environmental interests. Sustainability is the coming together of environmental interests, economic growth and social justice. Cities are becoming more populated and are where sustainable urban development is imperative. As a result city planners are looking to progressive cities for answers on how to implement sustainable policies in their own cities. Freiburg, Germany is often seen as the best example of sustainable urban development practices. This paper examines housing, transportation, and green space in Freiburg to analyze whether the city truly is sustainable or just “green.”
