Stockholm is a sustainable city where people want to work and live. Starting from the vision of a Stockholm for everyone, ambitious work is under way to develop the city of the future into a socially, economically, ecologically and democratically sustainable city. Stockholm is growing and the population is increasing. Consequently, new residential areas and new infrastructure are being built, but more schools, parks, preschools, libraries and gyms are also needed. One important reason why we are doing so much at once is that we have become more than 80,000 more Stockholmers since 2010, and the increase is continuing. By 2020, Stockholm’s city will have one million citizens. www.stockholm.se.
