This dissertation argues the conditions necessary for increased public participation in local planning for sustainable urban environments. The first section uncovers the meaning and implications of sustainability calling for sufficient amount of public participation in a successful, sustainable urban plan. The second section is a comparative analysis between Japanese and German environmental politics. Public participation will earn a much needed place in urban planning for sustainability when political and corporate ideology fulfills the economic, environmental, and social scopes inherent in sustainable planning.
