Sydney 2030 is about changing the way we live, work and play in the city; now and into the future. The blueprint for Sydney 2030 grew out of talking to people, asking how things could improve and what we can do to take the city forward.
Overwhelmingly, people who live and work in the city (and those that visit too), agreed Sydney 2030 should be a place where:
- the environment matters
- the economy thrives
- art and culture are encouraged and supported
- people feel at home, connected to the local community and the wider world
In short, you want a city that is green, global and connected. The picture you painted at the time (in 2008) is now firmly at the heart of everything the City of Sydney does, every day. We’re making your vision a reality.
