 Maybe, it can be possible to gather people for promoting more sustainable way of living. For instance, every month there might be an "​Sustainability movement"​ event in each small district of the city (or even just in each block of flats), where people can sell and buy some stuff that they don't need or don't use anymore (clothes, toys, cutlery, furniture, etc.), promote sustainable way of living. As the event is going to take place not only in one place for the whole city, there will be no need for people to go somewhere by car and produce carbon dioxide. Also, this event can include some sort of entertainment,​ so more people will be attracted to this. In this way of organizing people'​s communication (like a fair) used things won't be just disposed, but might be reused for different purposes. And also people will learn from each other how to be "​sustainable"​. ​ Maybe, it can be possible to gather people for promoting more sustainable way of living.

 This idea is very raw, and most likely to have some drawbacks. But I think that might be the basis for the development of future sustainability movement in practice. This idea is very raw, and most likely to have some drawbacks.

 +I decided to use the data from The Green City Index report. It includes several indicators for the analysis of different aspects of cities nowadays such as Energy consumption,​ air quality, buildings and transportation system, etc. Each indicator is in the range of [1,10]. As Copenhagen was announced "The Greenest City of 2009", its indicator values (blue line in chart) are compared to the maximum values obtained in Europe (red line) for a particular indicator. The names of these cities are mentioned in brackets near the indicators. ​ These maximum values can be used as a goal definition for the future development.
