Mission Statement Mannheim 2030
Since January 2016, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), developed within the framework of Agenda 2030 for sustainable development, have applied to all countries of the world. Hardly any of these goals can be achieved without the participation of cities. Mannheim is already involved in many ways in the field of sustainability. This commitment is now being further expanded against the backdrop of global challenges. In a broad-based participation process (the presentation can be found here) – sponsored by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and Engagement Global with its Service Agency Communities in One World – we have worked together with more than 2,500 Mannheim residents, companies, institutions, initiatives and associations, universities, self-help groups and others to develop a large number of proposals and suggestions for the "Mannheim 2030" mission statement. The central questions were how the 17 global sustainability targets can be implemented at local level and what our life in Mannheim should look like in 2030. Based on the findings and results of the mission statement process, the previous strategic objectives of the City of Mannheim were revised. The result is the "Mannheim 2030" mission statement. Through the local implementation of Agenda 2030, Mannheim is making an important contribution to a more sustainable and fairer world and is playing a pioneering international role in this.
The local council adopted this mission statement at its meeting on 12 March 2019.
*Further adjustment of the draft after the local council meeting will take place soon
