‘The Great Dublin Survey’: Our city in 2050

Posted: 25 May, 2017

Dublin Chamber has launched The Great Dublin Survey to find out what kind of city citizens would like to see in 2050.

According to Dublin Chamber CEO Mary Rose Burke: “We are giving Dubliners the opportunity to have their say on what they want and need their city to be like in the future. When it comes to quality of life, Dublin currently sits outside the top 30 cities in the world. By listening to the ideas of the people, we want to see Dublin rise up those rankings and challenge the world's best cities for the standard of living that they offer." 

The Great Dublin Survey is open to people of all age and it aims to capture the ideas, hopes, wants and aspirations of people who live in Dublin. The Great Dublin Survey is part of Dublin Chamber’s ‘Dublin 2050’ initiative, which is exploring the need for better long-term planning in the Dublin region.

The findings of the Survey will be fed back by the Chamber to decision makers and used to influence the Chamber's policy work of ensuring that Dublin becomes a better place to work, live and visit for both current and future generations.

The survey asks Dubliners to think ahead to the year 2050 and to consider where they want to live in the city, how they'd like to get around, the social amenities they'd like to see in their local communities, how prepared they are for technology to play an increasing role in daily life, the institutions and people that they expect will have a strong influence on their life in and also the qualities of other cities that should be replicated in Dublin.

The questions are intended to be thought-provoking and the more people who complete the survey the more interesting the results.  The Chamber will publish the findings of the survey later this summer. 

The survey is available online from now till the end of June at
