Milan is facing a new development stage. By 2030, more than 12,000 people will be over 85 years old while more than 50,000 will represent the young population between 19 and 34 years old. The plan under development for this city is looking for an inclusive growth, for everybody and everywhere. There is no chance to leave someone behind and efforts need to be focused in the city center as well as on the outskirts. At the same time, the growth needs to be sustainable and aiming to improve the quality of life of all people living in Milan. By 2030, Milan Municipality expects this city to be a hub for global network connecting people and places through new platforms, attracting people offering personal, professional and social opportunities, increasing its respect towards the environment and fostering a growing sustainable attitude in the continuous regeneration process within the city development.
