In this study, green economy subject is examined within the scope of rebound effect issue by consecutive questions in the light of the world's main goal of the sustainable development. The components of sustainable development known as 3E(economy-ecology-equity) has been studied since 1987.There are discussions on this subject about the significance, comprehensiveness and integration into countries of these components. The economy represents a significant role in these discussions. Economic and environmental attitudes that globally adopted; use-distribution of natural resources and waste shows that the world moves away from sustainability. It is stated that placing green economy approach to 3E supports sustainable development by the various disciplines. However the consumption creates the subject of debate in this situation. Sustainable development is affected negatively in all economies by the consumption-oriented lifestyle. Game theory approach could establish the link between the consumption with environmental issues. In this context, the main problem question that directs the study is: even if all technological developments and new economic regulations will be provided, can sustainable development be achieved in consumerist society? In conclusion; these evaluations can be carried out when trying to understand environmental issues by different game theory approaches from the perspective of urban planning: All the living thing on the earth wants to maximize their profits independently of each other. But human is tend to interfere with the systems of the other living or non-living thing. Unless there is no sense of near-term profits individually, sense of unconscious consumption doesn't disappear. At this cycle, planning is canalized to unsolvable questions.
