Brussels, Belgium

The guiding principle of the municipality of Brussels is that all residents of Brussels should have the chance to enjoy a better future.
Brussels is a city that aims to adapt and cope with the changing needs of its evolving inhabitants. The development of the city should be organised in a way so that it can cope with the demographic, economic and social challenges ahead.

Living Streets in Brussels

Brussel Participation, a department of the City of Brussels, works on the Public Policy Programme and aims to improve quality of life for its inhabitants as coordinator of the Living Streets initiative in Brussels.

Brussels Participation provides :

  • Financial support (rules & deliverables)
  • Guidance & advice (administrative, logistics, participation methodology)
  • Ensure the participation of all parties (citizens, association, city departments)
  • Inter-departmental working group

Brussels Participation developed a framework for Living Streets (Vade-Mecum) in January-February 2017 and this document was officially approved by the council in March 2017.
An inter-departmental working group was set up and several meetings were organised with different departments who advised and gave support on actions taken.

Two pilot streets already adopted the Vade-Mecum : Sint Jan Nepomucenus Street and the Vanderhaegen Street ("Living Forest"). In the Vanderhaegen Street, the steering group is composed of several organisations from the neighbourhood, together with citizens. The project is steered by the house of participation (Studio P).

In Brussels, there are numerous programmes and actions dedicated to residents (see the Public Policy Programme 2012-2018).
