On Friday 16 March 2012, the City of Brussels launched the campaign dedicated to 'Brussels, Digital City'. The campaign, which takes 3 months, is aimed at the digital progress of the City, the range of possibilities that facilitate the lives of citizens and the fight against the digital divide.
The logo of the campaign includes a keyboard Enter arrow with the slogan Enter the City. This slogan should encourage as many people as possible to actively participate in the event. A brochure and a website of Enter the City offer more information about the concept and the schedule of activities.
