Abstract: Nowadays despite multifarious prescriptions of sustainable development, there is an approach of sustainable values in any development's agenda. Considering the paradigm shift from the modern idea of growth, which had been considered to be able to compensate any negative effect of growth, to postmodern paradigm of development, which is obsessed about nature conservation, this article has made a model for green utopia. Three different but related factors are forming the utopia: knowledge, beliefs and desire. Human knowledge of the nature (as a complicated system) is forming this Green Future vision, knowledge vividly pictures a dystopia if the world denied following the knowledge, as well. In addition to knowledge, our beliefs play an important role. The last and the most important source of this utopia is human desire, unlike its predecessors it is not perfect. The conclusion of this article is a model for a green or sustainable utopia that is achieved through this study. Debating on different statements applications tries to optimize the utopia.
