Brussels Minister

  • 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.

  • 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.
