Green Urbanism is known as the process of designing new cities or developing already-existing ones to preserve resources, benefit humans, and reduce negative environmental impacts. Due to the increasing threats of global warming, gas emissions, and the diminishing of future energy resources, and as a result of the rapid increase in population, the world has decided to establish eco-friendly cities. 

The concept of Green Urbanism connects sustainable development techniques with urban planning to preserve future resources. By the integration of world organizations, researchers, urbanists, architects, and engineers, we can ensure the ability of the available resources to serve the increasing population, outlive the current environmental crisis, and establish eco-friendly urban cities.

Moreover, the world should pay more attention to the already-existing communities and try to maintain and preserve their identities through sustainable development plans. These communities should focus more on developing their cultural components and connecting their history with contemporary energy-production techniques. 

As per this, many world organizations have taken into their responsibility to spread the awareness of creating sustainable communities. IEREK, an old advocate of sustainable architecture and planning, has organized the 6th edition of its International Conference on "Green Urbanism" following the success of its previous five editions. The conference's goal is to help researchers and urbanists to integrate and share their experiences. Also, the Conference allows them to uncover the best sustainable solutions to integrate urbanism with the environment.

During the conference, several questions and problems will be addressed like how to balance urban development and environmental impacts. The Conference also tries to face the challenges of creating sustainable green communities by focusing on new techniques to organize the use of energy and natural resources. 

Following the success of the previous editions of "Green Urbanism," the 6th edition of the conference will be an opportunity to benefit from and exchange knowledge with experts in this field.

Selected papers of the conference will be published in a book series entitled Advances in Science, Technology, & Innovation (ASTI) by Springer. Other papers will be published by IEREK Press.
