Brussels Minister

  • Brussels is to be enjoyed by tram, on foot, by bike, ... while meeting other people. This calls for public transport and spatial planning that strike a balance between meeting others and just passing by.

  • Well-designed public spaces contribute to a more livable city. Squares and parks should oxygenate Brussels.

  • Our Brussels Region gives opportunities to children; it gives parents and children the possibility to take on their responsibilities. Our Brussels Region supports them to break away from poverty.

  • The city is a laboratory, a breeding ground for the future. Brussels needs to foster creativity and experimentation, providing spaces to play, practise sports and learn new skills.


Allee Du Kaai

friday -
allee du kaai

Pascal Smet pays a visit to the new site situated Allee Du Kaai, a project of the NPO Toestand. This dynamic organisation is active in the fight against empty properties and aims to give them a useful meaning.

Brussels environment puts several properties situated on the Quai des matériaux at disposal. On this site, young people can take spontaneous action. During his visit, Pascal Smet met the young co-workers who support the project. "I believe in the importance of open and creative experimental spaces for the youth. They represent a new opportunity for the youth and allow them to set up projects in this field or to express themselves creatively and artistically".

As former Flemish minister of Youth, Pascal Smet has supported this project by means of funds coming from experimental projects in the framework of youth support. Let us hope that the current minister of Youth Sven Gatz will continue to support the project structurally.
