Participatory workshop: “There’s something in the air”

19 April 2022
Citizens of Brussels are invited to join the “There’s something in the Air” workshop on 27 April at 19.00h in BeCentral (Cantersteen 10)!

As part of the Brussels for Clean Air campaign, JEF Brussels and the European Citizens Action Service are organising this participative democracy event. It is the occasion not only to present the most cited problems in Brussels when it comes to Air pollution, but also to jointly find solutions! Just like on our platform.

The BRAL will also provide insights on the outcomes of the Curieuzenair project to get an overview of the current air quality in Brussels.

Find more information about the event here, or sign up directly!
