Vision 2040 - A Stockholm for everyone

Vision 2040 was developed by Stockholm's city departments, administrations and companies, along with several external partners. It is a long term, complete vision for the city's development and sustainable growth. The Vision consists of four main goals.

A Stockholm that stands united

In 2040, Stockholm will be a cohesive city, where all children have the same opportunities to achieve proficiency targets, apartments are available at reasonable rents, the elderly are guaranteed a secure life, and equal opportunity, gender equality and accessibility are never questioned.

Eco-smart Stockholm

In 2040, Stockholm will be a climate-smart city that prioritises cycling, walking and public transportation. An efficient, climate-smart transportation system is combined with greater consumption of renewable energy. Children are guaranteed a non-toxic environment and more organic food is served at city facilities.

Financially sustainable Stockholm

In 2040, Stockholm will be a financially sustainable city, where financial accountability is combined with labour market initiatives based on easy access to available jobs, education and housing.

Democratically sustainable city 

In 2040, Stockholm will be a democratically sustainable city that promotes human rights, combats discrimination and guarantees all inhabitants equal rights and opportunities.

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 implement it in their activities and operations.

The process

The process of creating the Vision was lead by the City Executive Office, and has been developed through an active dialogue within the City, with representatives from businesses, academia, the educational system and many more.
