Abstract: This research analyses certain sustainable urban strategies that are in correlation with the improvement of the living conditions of the local flora and fauna, improvement of the air quality, air temperatures in summer period and improvement of the physical wellbeing and social cohesion of it?s habitants. More precisely, this research discusses the possible ways of application of the analyzed ecological and bioclimatic urban strategies for achieving sustainable solutions regarding urban planning and design of a green active public space on a selected neglected location in Novo Lisice-Aerodrom Municipality in Skopje. The proposal for new active green public space is designed to be context-sensitive and ecologically treated space. It is intended this project to be a new meeting point for sport and recreation for the local residents, that in the same time will offer green and safe home for all the local flora and fauna species. This study was conducted in the following steps. At first, the environmental and bioclimatic discourse was analyzed in order to give explanation which of the mentioned principles can be applied on the analyzed case. Then, different analytical methods and information from various scientific areas were used, which helped in detecting the real problems present on the analyzed location. The following step was to define the target group of future visitors and residents on the newly defined conceptual design. In order to define the adequate sustainable strategies that will have ecological, health and socio-environmental qualities, the so called "eco features" were established. "Eco feature" in this research represents a sustainable quality of a particular strategy or urban measure that can improve the coexistence of all the local inhabitants on this location and neighborhood: people, animals, insects and plants. In the same time the selected strategies will improve the air quality, lower the summer temperatures, revitalize the chosen location, improve the physical wellbeing and social cohesion, create people centered urban design and redefine the city values.
