Transforming the urban environment is a complicated and lengthy process. This is why we have to be ready for the FUTURIGA – Riga of the future. The proposed solutions adhere to the vision set out in Riga’s Sustainable Development Strategy for 2014-2030 for the city’s progress towards becoming a fully-fledged Northern European metropolis. According to the vision: the future Riga is compact, resource-efficient and smart; multicultural and tolerant; pedestrian, cyclist and public transport friendly; with an outstanding cultural environment and a creative population; vibrant neighbourhoods and a preserved cultural landscape; diverse and quality nature territories: green corridors and accessible canal sides and river banks.
