4 million euros for 44 great playgrounds

Since 2013, Dutch-speaking schools in Brussels can receive a VGC BuitenSpel (outdoor play) subsidy to transform their playground into an adventurous and creative spot. 44 schools received a subsidy in 2020.

Pupils from 61 schools are now playing on their renovated playground. In 2020, 20 schools were able to make full use of their playground.
