Cities after the Industrial Revolution and the growth rate were developed, along with its many consequences. Most of the effects of these effects on the environment and the quality of life of the people of these societies have entered. One of the methods for assessing the extent of human-to-nature relation is the ecological footprint method. This method measures the quality of the needs of a human group that measures a given amount of land and water, generates resources and disposes of waste generated by its life. This research uses a descriptive-analytical method to study the ecological footprint of Tabriz city and attempts to answer this question: Is the ecology of Tabriz city capable of supporting and fulfilling the basic needs of the city's population? The results of this research indicate that the ecological footprints of Tabriz city were in food products groups, transportation, natural gas heating, water, electricity and land needed for waste disposal of 3.30 hectares. This suggests that the city of Tabriz relies on a region beyond East Azerbaijan to meet its biological needs and sustainability. A look at the amount of consumables in Tabriz shows that the share of food with 2.73 hectares has the highest share among other items. The lowest amount of land needed for waste disposal was 0.77 square meters per person. Since Iran's bio capacity is 0.8 hectares. An ecological footprint of 3.30 hectares in Tabriz city means that 125.4 times more than its share is allocated to the country's sustainable capacity for biodiversity.
