Deloitte: Urban futures with purpose: 12 trends shaping the future of cities in 2030 (with report)


Against the backdrop of a prolonged epidemic and intensified turbulence in the world’s political and economic landscape, China’s urban development faces many opportunities and challenges. Deloitte has summarized and formed twelve urban development trends in 2030 through global urban research and observation. In response to these trends, we also analyzed the development plans currently being implemented in various cities in China, and found that the penetration rate of Chinese cities in the fields of low-carbon smart travel, automation of urban operations with artificial intelligence, and monitoring and policing forecasting with artificial intelligence has increased. It tends to be the world’s leading level, but needs to be further improved in circular economy and local production, 15-minute city, network security and privacy. We believe that creating urban green ecology, promoting urban digital transformation, improving the convenience of community facilities, and providing more refined and humanized urban services will be the core issues that will run through China’s urban development in the future.

Building a green urban ecology – Promoting green development and ecological civilization construction under the goal of “carbon peaking and carbon neutrality” has become the top priority. Accelerating the creation of green ecology is the most important and urgently needed urban construction focus in the future. In the future, while citizens’ demand for material culture is increasing, they will also have higher and higher requirements for urban environmental protection and ecological livability.

Promoting the digital transformation of cities – With the rapid development of new technologies such as the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence, citizens increasingly demand agile and intelligent urban services. Smart upgrading and digital transformation have become long-term development issues for most cities in China.

Improve the convenience of community support – urban planning will be more inclined to rationally allocate public services and production service facilities in the community, create a “15-minute life circle”, and improve the convenience of residents’ health services, cultural exchanges, and life services. At the source, reduce “big city diseases” such as job-housing imbalance and pendulum-type traffic congestion.

Provide more refined and humanized urban services – proactively take care of the life and development of residents of different cultural backgrounds, genders, ages and their families, take into account the consumption needs of young groups and the care needs of elderly groups, and create “everyone”. “Cities for all” is the mainstream of urban development in China.

Looking forward to 2030, Chinese cities are meeting the needs of citizens in all aspects with better supply of software and hardware, and solving problems in urban development with more scientific, refined and humanized governance, so that the masses have more sense of gain, happiness, sense of security. With the joint efforts of the government and the people, we have full confidence in the high-quality development of Chinese cities. Chinese cities are making continuous efforts towards the grand goals of “lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets” and “satisfying the people’s yearning for a better life”.
