In this project, our goal is to study the sustainable city index in the world by approaching the topic with the concept of “Sustainable City”. We are examining the criteria on which the measurements concerning the sustainability city index are based on and the effects of these measurements. We are investigating the ranking of the cities based on their sustainability indexes and how the cities are arranged with respect to the measurement criteria. We will include these findings in our presentation. We are considering the position of Istanbul according to the Sustainable City Index and we will present its progress of becoming a sustainable city. We will present the areas in need for development in Istanbul and the projects which are planned for the improvement of the city. We will do our research on our government’s plans, what has changed from the past until now and what can the people of the city can do concerning sustainability and becoming a “Smart City”. We want to concentrate on natural and environmental issues and the studies on these areas in our project. We are researching how Istanbul can reduce its damage on nature in spite of its increasing population. On the second stage of our project, we want to have a contribution in making Istanbul a sustainable city by turning our school campus into a “Sustainable Campus”. We will present what we did to accomplish our goal and what we have planned for the future.
