Participation

We all work together to make Brussels. You think with us, you talk to us, you take part and share responsibility, along with many partners. We listened to the ideas of Brussels residents during the 'Stadspiratie' (city inspiration) and the “Brussels consultation round”. Those ideas offered inspiration for the multi-year plan drawn up by the VGC. The plan includes policy actions for the coming years, actions for Brussels and for Brussels residents.
