Dublin 2050: A New Vision for Dublin

What do the people of Dublin want their city to be like in the future? That’s what we set out to discover when we launched the Dublin 2050 initiative in 2016.

Eighteen months on, we were delighted to share the fruits of the project in the form of 'A Vision for Dublin 2050', a 48-page document, and the accompanying Dublin 2050 video, which can be found here

There has never been a more important time to talk about Dublin’s future. As the capital of Ireland, and the powerhouse of the national economy, it is vital for everyone that Dublin works. Our aim in establishing this initiative was to explore the need for better long-term planning in the Dublin region.

A key part of the initiative during 2017 was The Great Dublin Survey – a series of thought-provoking questions that we put to the people of Dublin – and also anyone with an interest in the city’s future. The aim of the Survey was to capture the ideas, hopes, wants and aspirations of all these people. 

Getting people to open up was easy as the conversation about Dublin’s future was already taking place. Dublin Chamber set out to ignite that discussion. We succeeded too, with more than 20,000 people filling out the survey and in excess of 1.4 million people engaging with Great Dublin Survey content.

When it comes to quality of life, Dublin currently sits outside the top 30 cities in the world. Dublin Chamber wants to see Dublin rise up those rankings and challenge the world's best cities for the standard of living that they offer.

Over the coming months and years, we will to continue to work to make Dublin a better place to work, live and visit, both for current and future generations.
