Cities are hubs of innovation and creativity.

Cities are key to achieving global goals.

With a high amount of educated people and financial means and they can scale up solutions quickly and efficiently.

When cities act together they have immense potential to tackle several challenges simultaneously.

From supporting global commitments to providing efficient local solutions, the influence of cities can be significant.

Cities can push forwards societal changes that will benefit us all.

To create efficient, affordable, and inclusive neighbourhoods, housing in cities will have to be rethought.

Housing becomes unaffordable in major cities. Changing acquisition and rental patterns as well as short supply of new homes hit low to moderate income households the hardest.

Population ageing will need adaptations. Especially in spatial infrastructure, cities need to be more accessible and inclusive to all ages.

This should include intergenerational living projects, mobility campaigns and better designs for all age groups.

New technologies will transform how people move, live, work, and interact with authorities within cities.

These technologies will need to be interoperable, integrated, and implemented in an inclusive way to benefit the functioning of cities.

Shared, automated vehicles and multi-modal mobility will help complement public transport in cities. This could reduce some of the 250 million personal cars in the EU.

New work patterns such as teleworking could reduce commuting.

An ageing Europe will struggle with challenges related both to growing populations in some cities and declining populations in others.

  • 22% of EU citizens currently live in cities may lose more than 10% of their population by 2050.
  • 42% of EU citizens currently live in cities that can increase their population by more than 10%.

Over half of European cities will see their population decline.

One in three will grow by more than 10% in the next 30 years.
