A social conscience about what is going on in relation to climate changes, global warning, urban pollution, water emergency, municipal solid waste problem and, in general, future urban scenarios seems to be enough widespread in large segments of population. The city, where in few years about the 75% of the world population will settle, represents one of the main entropic system in particular because of the location of climate-altering and polluant activities. This awarness have generated an ethic change, a radical transformation of the ways of action and interaction between man and environment, between citizens and urban environment. The attention to sustainable urban development, participated urban planning, the consideration of territory as non renewable resource, sustainable mobility and so on has been characterizing also the investigation in the field of urban and regional sciences. Moving from these assumptions it is now necessary to codify a new process of sustainable town planing which is able to indicate the real actions to operate on the city. This paper intends to describe this new process called: Ecourbanistica (Ecotownplanning) starting from the systemic approach to the city.
