The Lublin Development Strategy for the years 2022-2030 was adopted on 27 January 2022 at the Lublin City Council. This document leads the way for the development of Lublin in the next decade.

he Lublin 2030 Strategy is the result of a complex participatory process, with city-dwellers as the co-authors of the development vision and concept, said Krzysztof Żuk, Mayor of Lublin. Work on the Lublin 2030 Strategy lasted 3 years, and included about 15,000 respondents at all stages and levels – residents, experts, as well as a number of organisations and institutions. Over the course of several hundred open thematic meetings, debates, discussions, workshops, a process of quantitative and qualitative research and during two-stage social consultations, together formed a vision of Lublin 2030.

The Strategy document focuses on five fundamental sections and areas, explains Mariusz Sagan, Head of Strategy and Entrepreneurship Department.

Lublin 2030 is to be:

– creative, academic and entrepreneurial
– green and sustainable in terms of urban planning
– open, multigenerational and socially engaged
– creative, open and hospitable
– metropolitan


For each of these areas, there are specific objectives and goals to be accomplished.The finalized document will shortly be issued in a printed version in three languages – Polish, English and Russian.

The Lublin 2030 Strategy was created within the EU project “Let’s invent Lublin together: we participate in the creation of an intelligent Lublin 2030 Strategy” as part of the grant competition “Human Smart Cities: smart cities co-created by residents” organised by the Ministry of Funds and Regional Policy. The project is co-financed by the European Union under the Cohesion Fund – Operational Programme Technical Assistance 2014-2020 and from the national budget.

The document is available on the website.

As part of the competition, students from all over the world were encouraged to create a short film that composed of innovative images, guided and inspired by its evocative power.

Witold Malczyński’s success is even greater as he became the first laureate of the “Grand Prix” from Poland (Eastern Europe). The award was presented during a ceremonial gala on January 21 in Paris, this year. The gala in Paris was held with the financial support of the City of Lublin.

“Everyone should have an equal opportunity to start a business.”
