Sustainable development

The City of Brussels and the Public Welfare Centre of Brussels have concrete sustainable development commitments and measures. The goal of sustainable development is to reconcile economic, social and environmental aspects of human activities.

The Agenda 21 is an action plan that contains the priorities of sustainable development of the City and the CPAS.

It contains more than 150 action sheets organized around five goals and spread over 22 areas of intervention. These actions are subject to an annual review. This plan defines a code of conduct for municipal employees, local government, users and citizens.

The details and the documents of the action plans and their goals are only available in Dutch and French.

Do you have ideas for improving air quality? Do you want a collective compost for your neighborhood? Do you think inclusion of people with disabilities is very important? The City of Brussels has a budget of 100,000 euros to encourage the implementation of citizen initiatives for sustainable development.
