I came to Brussels for 6 months and never left. I’ve lived in 4 different communes and loved the diversity of each. My 2 children were born here and attend a Belgian school. Brussels has a lot to offer, but there is much we can improve.
We need to work together across communes, at city-region level, to tackle issues such as mobility and air quality, to build a coherent vision for our shared urban space with more kid-friendly spaces and better accessibility for people with disabilities.
By getting involved at local level, I’ve seen how small actions can lead to big change. But I can only become truly engaged when I have the right to vote.
