In order to ensure their immediate survival, humans accept any sacrifice at the expense of their surrounding ecosystem. Sustainability is the key to build and harmony between our development and the consumption of our planet’s limited resources. Mindful of their past mistakes, developed countries should try and lead underdeveloped areas to a sustainable growth, finding compromises, making sacrifices and not exporting their worst practices, like speculating on the desperate need for survival of others, but their best ones instead. Such responsibility would be facilitated by a change coming from the bottom, a change in the aspirations of individuals and communities. The city, a urban ecosystem, is indeed the starting point of such changes. By interpreting these general targets, this paper aims at practically achievable actions that individuals can carry on in the urban environment, with a basic support by local authorities, to improve the socio-economic livability of their communities, considering ecological balance, well-being and technological progress. Turkey is a very interesting country, a growing economy and a melting pot of Western and Islamic culture. With a special look on this land, the actions that we’ve focused on concern: a. Sustainable mobility - introducing an approach to improve mobility in cities like Istanbul, as well as a model of sustainable mobility for the whole country. b. Cultural heritage, economic development and value creation – improving Turkish enormous cultural heritage through management renewal and the adoption of advanced technologies such as 3D. These two fields, are very much interlaced when considering urban development and sustainability. One stimulates territorial identification, the other allows to reach it. The global crisis we are witnessing today is not just a matter of ecology; it has to do with our lifestyles, the way we developed and how we manage our resources. The opportunity to rediscuss the principles of growth can be used to counter the enduring international economic crisis through the rediscovery of those values concerning the sustainable quality of life we need to aim at for our future development.

A ride on a steam train is a popular family outing. More than 100 heritage railways cater for that demand, capturing the spirit of nostalgia while preserving the engines and equipment of past days of rail travel. Their interests even extend to the modern era of 1960's - 70's diesels. Those heritage railways themselves have a long pedigree, back to 1951, when a group of enthusiasts saved the Talyllyn Railway in mid-Wales from closure. They ran this railway as volunteers, out of their love of the little trains and a desire to keep it going. Their example was followed by many more preservation societies who preserved and restored branch lines, country lines and industrial lines for our enjoyment now. Six decades have passed, and we are now beginning to realize what an impressive history the heritage railway movement has. This book traces that history, from the humble beginnings the hopes and ambitions of the pioneers on the different railway projects. There were times of failure and frustration, as some fell by the wayside, but others have made it through times of adversity to become the major heritage businesses of today.
