Temporary installations will be planned in public spaces this summer in the Brussels region.

The current health crisis highlights the need to better share public space and to reserve a significant part of it for active modes in order to guarantee safety and sufficient physical distance. With the coming summer holidays, the Brussels Government has decided to support initiatives that will make it possible, in all neighbourhoods, to expand the range of recreational, cultural, event, commercial, catering and sports facilities for all Brussels residents.

More information to be found on the website:

A list of about twenty places with the space manager's contact details is made available to initiative bearers on the website so that they can get in touch directly. :
