E. F. Schumacher, in his Briefing, has propounded three concepts about a sustainable city. These three concepts are appropriate scale, wholeness and connectedness. Under appropriate scale he says that our settlements can and should be organized in such a way that we, as individual citizens, feel that we have a stake in the decisions that shape our lives. For sustainable urban development we should look at cities as a whole. It is also essential for us to create a new sense of connectedness. We have to link ourselves to people in our neighborhood, to people all over the world and also to future generations whose well-being is deeply affected by decisions and investments being made today.
