On 13 June 2023, Enabel and its partners VVSG, Brulocalis and Echos Communication are pleased to invite you to the workshop ‘Engaging citizens within cities in transition’ which will take place from 4-6pm, as part of the Brussels Urban Summit.
The workshop will showcase projects from Rwanda and Palestine that foster bottom-up approaches, reinforcing integrated design for sustainable and socially conscious urban transitions. It also aims to provide diverse perspectives from institutions, researchers, and practitioners actively involved in participatory urban design and development in the Global South.
The closing remarks will be given by Belgian minister for Development Cooperation and Major Cities, Caroline Gennez.
Following the workshop, a warm and engaging networking drink will be hosted at the Musee des Beaux Arts, courtesy of Brussels Capital. Moreover, a remarkable cultural event, open to registered participants only, will conclude the Summit on June 15th at Flagey.
