—Nowadays, it is estimated that 70% of cities worldwide are engaged in various forms of city-to-city cooperation. Successful cities are able to establish a connection with the creative environment by different inter-city cooperatives and convergence. The construction of aversive facilities in the city which involves social issues such as the Nimby has found a solution in the cooperation between neighboring cities. In this study, the implications of city-to-city cooperation for the installation of aversive environmental infrastructure will be drawn out by case analysis of Korea. The focus of analysis is that the methods of city-to-city cooperation, the result of the cooperation and its effect. City-to-city cooperation regarding environmental infrastructure is expressed in the form of “sharing” facilities. Finally, in order to build a future of sustainable cities, it is wiser to focus on win-win development instead of focusing on each individual city’s growth. Also, building the foundational infrastructure necessary for city development requires a change in public perception.
