In this day and age, it is acknowledged that the population living within urban areas has increased considerably, which could be considered as the major contributor to environmental degradation and concentration of greenhouse gases. It is reasonable that this tendency raises demands for establishing sustainable urban systems, remarkably for constructing eco-cities as the solution for problems relating to the process of urbanisation. In that context, this paper examines the dominant urban conversation as the foundation for identifying international best practice eco-cities around the world in order to address the research question: ′Are eco-cities delivering on sustainability?′ With regard to the methodology utilised for this study, a literature review with the reference from different academic resources is developed to clarify the dominant urban thinking stream within several last decades. In addition, a critical case study approach is also employed to establish a framework for analyzing experiences of creating eco-cities from a prominent example – Freiburg (Germany). The preliminary result of the study illustrates that the dominant urban conversation is arranged with the administration of economic growth as well as neoliberalism and market-based components, which favours the development of entrepreneurial city or competitive city. Within this foundation, the research also shows that the listed eco-city – Freiburg (Germany) is positioned within this dominant urban conversation with a focus on the practices of sustainable urban development in the areas of green technology, energy, waste management, transportation and green space.
