To mark the 25th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide, a fresco by Bruce Clarke and his project Upright Men (Les Hommes Debout) appeared on the wall at the intersection of the Rue du Meiboom and the Rue de l'Ommegang. This mural art painting of an Upright Man is now part of the Street Art Trail of the City of Brussels.
A tram will soon connect Neder-Over-Heembeek to the city centre. To make the tram a success for all users, the City of Brussels set up a citizens' panel to guide the study of the project, bringing together the Brussels Capital Region, the municipalities and citizens. 8 citizen representatives were selected for the Guidance Committee.
