This study analyzes which meaning is attributed to the concept of sustainable city within Hyllie’s environmental planning. This is done through a critical discourse analysis based on a theoretical framework that has its starting point in three different environmental discourses. The empirical material is primarily based on Hyllie’s environmental program. The analysis focuses primarily on three key areas of the city’s environmental documents: the need of technological innovations for a sustainable development, the human impact within the sustainable city and the importance of an environmental attractive Hyllie.
The analysis shows how the concept of sustainable city takes the role of an experimental arena for technological innovation as well as an arena where people can be controlled. But above all, it shows how the term sustainable city is used as a means of marketing. (Less)
