City Introduction

A world class Stockholm – the city vision of 2030
During the fall of 2006, a process started in Stockholm in which all of the city’s departments, administrations and companies, along with several external partners, took part in formulating a long term, complete vision for Stockholm’s development and for a sustainable growth. The project was named “Vision Stockholm 2030”. The vision presents three coherent themes for the city’s development, as well information on what Stockholm will look like in 2030.

Versatile and full of unique experiences
Do you dream of a fulfilling educational program or an exciting job? Are you attracted by a broad variety of culture and entertainment? Then Stockholm is the place for you. In 2030, Stockholm will be a versatile city full of unique education and business opportunities, and with unspoiled nature at your doorstep – a combination that has, and will continue to attract visitors from around the world.

Innovative and growing
In 2030, Stockholm is an obvious centre in the expanding Stockholm–Mälar region. The region’s international competitiveness is strong and it is seen as Europe’s fastest growing region. It features a dynamic, innovative business community that successfully competes on the global market, and by knowledge-based activities, innovative power and a fruitful cooperation between education and research institutes.

The citizens’ Stockholm
In 2030, Stockholm will be an accessible, safe region without social or physical barriers. The city also features much-appreciated social services that supply Stockholmers with extensive opportunities to choose between various providers of health and care services and schools.

Vision and reality
The vision of the future Stockholm is a strategic commitment by the city. All committees, departments and companies should work towards the vision, and to implement it in their own activities and operations.
