The Florida 2030 Project
Click here to read what 100 of Florida’s business leaders had to say about Florida’s future.
The recommendations released come from three years’ worth of research and feedback from more than 10,000 Floridians in each of Florida’s 67 counties as part of the Florida 2030 initiative- a multi-million research initiative that seeks to identify the challenges and opportunities Florida has between now and 2030, and to create a blueprint for Florida’s future. Recommendations found that:
- Florida is growing- our state needs to add 1.7 million net new jobs by 2030.
- Florida must prepare its workforce to take advantage of global consumer demand.
- Florida is experiencing generational changes.
- Florida will need to adapt to shifting skills and the training that will be required.
- Innovation and disruption are transforming industries and jobs.
- The nature of work in Florida is changing.

Are You Ready to Put the Long-Term Ahead of the Short-Term?
Florida is now the third most populous state and by 2030, six million more residents will call Florida home and two million more jobs will be needed. To prepare for this continued growth and ensure Florida remains successful, the Florida Chamber Foundation is leading the charge to write the blueprint for Florida’s future — Florida 2030. This two-year research program will stimulate strategic thinking about Florida’s future and engage business and community leaders in each of Florida’s 67 counties and identify key trends and the factors that can drive their regional economy. Florida 2030 is our opportunity to work together to strengthen your community, business and future. The future belongs to all Floridians and we need your help to plan for the future.
