In contrast to the spatial plan which is obligatory for each city to have, it is up to each city to decide if they want to do the city strategy or not. We don’t want the city to develop only on the basis of isolated ad-hoc decisions. We want to develop Brno systematically, with a clear vision of its future, along with you.
Together with the experts and Brno inhabitants we have prepared the crucial document “Vision of Brno in 2050”. In September 2020, Brno representatives approved an update to the city’s long-term Vision 2050.
In winter, according to the strategic vision we made an update of the following plan of City of Brno for next 10 years, which was approved by Brno representatives in March 2021. Therefore the vision of the city development is getting the concrete form.
Until autumn 2021 we make a list of concrete projects for the forthcoming years, which will gradually come into existence in Brno streets. We do not want the vision to be just a paper, but we want it to change Brno into self-confident city, which the whole world would be envious of. Or at least Europe.
In 2050, Brno is a synonym for an attractive and at the same time sustainable city in international comparisons.
The people of Brno appreciate the high quality of life in the city, which offers them employment and business, entertainment and relaxation. The fruits of research and innovation are linked here with the economic prosperity of individuals and companies. The urban landscape mingles with the surrounding countryside. Openness and cohesion on the one hand, and a healthy and resilient environment on the other, create a home and safe background for half a million people.
The people of Brno are aware of the scarcity and limitations of natural resources; they support their efficient use, so that the city always has enough water, energy and resources for its development. They want to leave the city in an equal or better condition for future generations.
The people of Brno can see that the city is managed energetically, in a modern and efficient manner. The governance and development of the city are based on a cultivated public debate and long-term cooperation of all partners.
The city breathes for its inhabitants and they in turn can be proud of their city.
Have you ever thought what Brno would look like, in say…. 10 years? We gave these ideas a visible shape. The city representatives approved the second of the three strategy parts in March 2021 – PLAN 2030. It was upgraded with the help of professionals and corrected in formal way as well as from the view of reflection of the actual pandemic consequences, new findings from circular economy or adaptation the climatic effects. Now we know what we have to work on the following 10 years.
Once we know if and how the current situation has rearranged our city’s priorities, we will move on to specific projects and activities for the coming years – the so-called Action Plans.
Will Brno finally have a dignified concert hall? What new sports facilities will be created? Where will new apartments be built?
Some projects are already being worked on, while others are gradually being shaped and their implementation will begin in the coming years. Together we will decide when, how and at what cost the implementation will take place and who will be in charge of it. We will gradually develop the Action Plan together with professionals and with you until the fall of 2021.
However, you can enjoy the first sampling of the upcoming projects in the details of the thematic areas of #brno2050.
During the spring and summer of 2018, you also participated in the creation of Strategy #brno2050 in the streets of Brno and online. Through the applications ‘Emotional Map of Brno and its Districts’ and ‘I Want Brno To Be Like This’, we have obtained your views on the future of Brno from you.
For the second time in succession, we turned to Brno people asking them to help us create an emotional map of the city. This year also with a request to focus in more detail not only on the centre, but also on other parts of the city. Places where they live or where they like it – simply the places they know best.
In the application ”I Want Brno To Be Like This’, you have simply tried out how you would decide on what is important for the city.
The application was made available in two versions – for children and for adults.
What choices did you make? See what Brno should be like in 2050 according to you.
