Abstract: 
One of the main goals of green design is to achieve social impact and closing human and nature to one another. Green space, including the portion of land use which has any plants (trees, shrubs, the flowers and grass). In addition to the importance and role of green spaces in life, the issue of their distribution (geographical equity) is important too. Ilam city not only faces a shortage of green space but this amount has unequal distribution in the city. The city with four regions and fourteen urban areas has per capita green space 1.39 square meters. National per capita green space is 7-12 and the world standard is 25-50 square. In this paper to test the hypothesis that per capita green space in the city of Ilam has not got a balanced distribution, socio-environmental sustainability indicators were measured in the city of Ilam, and Standardized then T-test is used to test differences among the means in regions and districts. Reviewing socio-environmental sustainability indicators represents the difference between the regions and districts of Ilam city. T-test result for difference between the averages of all indicators shows the difference between the areas in level of α=0.025 are significant. Thus, with 95 percent confidence interval, the principle of inequality between regions can be approved. And can be said: Development of Ilam city in the socio-environmentally goals are not Sustainable.
