Zaporizhzhia 2030 Vision
We have started working on the new Zaporizhzhia 2030 Vision, which will be based on international experience combined with the active involvement of citizens.
Zaporizhzhia has a great potential for development, and as part of the project, we want to explore possible promising vectors for development and identify priorities in joint working groups. What is a comfortable and human-centered city in the minds of Zaporizhzhia residents and what changes does the environment need today?
The war has challenged us, but it has also given us a chance. We can develop a new Zaporizhzhia that can be better than the previous one. A city that will be green, modern, comfortable, safe, inclusive and full of opportunities.
The Zaporizhzhia Vision 2030 is a document that aims to define the future of the city of Zaporizhzhia during and after the war. The existing Zaporizhzhia City Territorial Community Development Strategy until 2028 is outdated and needs to be revised and updated in the context of war.
Ro3kvit Urban Coalition for Ukraine provides expert support to Zaporizhzhia City Council to ensure the use of modern methods and tools in the development of the Vision. Experts from intersectoral working groups - representatives of civil society organizations, scientists, educators, and city council officials - will also be involved in the development of the vision for Zaporizhzhia's future. They will share their knowledge and experience in various spheres of city life and contribute to the formation of a common vision of the city's future development.
At this stage of the project, we have identified 14 sectors that influence the quality of life in the city, such as ecology, culture, economy, mobility, sports, education, infrastructure, safety and security, digitalization, etc. Each of these areas will have a working group responsible for analyzing the current state, identifying problems, and proposing solutions.
