This year, your volunteering with 1bru1Vote, VoteBrussels or a local party has helped to change Brussels and showed your commitment to get non-Belgians more involved. Now that the communal elections are over, 1bru1Vote & VoteBrussels want to team up with you and ask: what’s next? To decide our next steps, join our 19 November Citizens Convention & sign up to our email list.
We all know the problem.
Brussels, Capital of Europe, has one of the largest democratic deficits in the EU. One-third of its residents are not allowed to vote in the Brussels-Capital regional election, nor are they systematically asked to register for local elections and get involved in public life.
Finally, we have a solution; Within a few months, Brussels is changing now.
Thanks to you.
As a direct result, Brussels’ elections have become more competitive and parties have promised more opportunities for residents to get involved in local decisions.
But what about the upcoming Regional Elections?
Dozens of you volunteered with #1bru1Vote to demand the right to vote in the Brussels-Capital regional elections for all Brussels residents.
These past few months have not only shown what enormous potential non-Belgians bring to Brussels, but also shown what structures and support we need to get non-Belgians involved. This will only happen if we find ways to work together to improve Brussels democracy.
That’s why 1bru1Vote and VoteBrussels want to team up with you and ask:
- What are our recommendations to the Brussels Region and communes? 1bru1Vote and VoteBrussels have analysed the state of play. Now we need your proposals!
- And what is our role as citizens? What will each of us do on our own and what should we do together?
– Are you interested to join us? –
1) REGISTER and join us on 19 November at 19:00 for our Citizens Convention.
We’ll draft our recommendations together & discuss your ideas for next steps.
2) SIGN UP TO OUR EMAIL LIST.
You can contribute to the recommendations online and propose and join future actions. In the future, online may be the easiest way for us all to discuss with large numbers of people in multiple languages.
This list is GDPR-compliant and hosted by Migration Policy Group, the independent European think-tank that coordinated VoteBrussels for the European Commission.
