Culture is one the important component in the city. Our views on the world are disparate and, although sciences comprehend parts of the world's rationality, this comprehension is not all-encompassing. In other hands, the concept of “city” and “management” shown sustainable cities programme (SCP) for all aspects related of city. Therefore, in order to improve life conditions, environmental sustainability, economics and etc., we need strong approaches for city managing. In this paper, we first review some important concepts, then we proposed some strategy for reinforcement of the sustainable cities, that is cities management.
