Following The Industrial Revolution, along with newly developing job opportunities, a rapid migration from rural to urban has begun. With the increasing flow of migration, the urban enlarged. With the increase of the distance in access, wide motorways and railways started to be built up on these areas. Along with major freeways, throughout 20th Century, the natural environment began to be destroyed and fragmented, resulting in urban sprawl and environmental pollution. Traces of the reclaim of the streets from car dominance were examined and the steps leading to a low carbon living were investigated. As a result, five principles were developed upon this living mode. These principles were scrutinized at the neighborhood scale. Having strong social bond in itself, the neighborhood scale is appropriate for implementing these principles. In the study, single case studies suitable for various low carbon living concepts were examined. According to the method, the theoretical structure of the study was evaluated, then applied projects were examined, and thus an awareness questionnaire on "low carbon living" was applied with cyclists representing low carbon transportation. This study of "low carbon living awareness" is the first academic study in Turkish case. According to the survey results, cyclists’ awareness of low carbon living is promising. In particular, awareness of low carbon transportation is high. İzmir has potential in terms of low carbon living. In general, there is a certain awareness degree and walking and cycling priority urban design. All of this forms the basis for the formation of low carbon neighborhoods. Keywords: Low carbon living, low carbon neighborhood, cycling and walking priority design, İzmir
