A City for All – towards a socially just and resilient Sydney

A City for All – towards a socially just and resilient Sydney

Final report

Council adopted the social sustainability policy and action plan in October 2018.

Social sustainability

We invite your feedback on our social sustainability policy and action plan – A City for All.

The plan sets out the City’s vision and agenda to sustain a socially just and resilient Sydney over the next decade.

A City for All responds directly to the United Nations sustainable development goals. It is based on the principle that together, we can improve the quality of life our city offers for current and future generations.

We consulted extensively with our communities to develop the plan. More than 2,400 people were involved. A people’s summit of community representatives was convened to set the priorities identified in the plan.

The plan sets out actions to strengthen our society through 4 strategic directions:

  • an inclusive city: social justice and opportunity
  • a connected city: diverse, cohesive communities
  • a liveable city: quality places and spaces
  • an engaged city: good governance and active participation.
We will work with all levels of government, the private and not-for-profit sectors and our wider community on this shared agenda for social progress.
