June 1, 2016
12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
De Warande
Zinner Street,
Brussels 1000, Belgium

Which urban and socio-economic strategy can make such a location originate a place to live including all the relative functions such as Schools, Culture Housing, Crèche, Senior housing, healthcare, retail offices, logistics and green areas ?

With the right strategy such a location will then not only be a place to go through but to go to and live from and ultimately make the city more competitive.

This is the theme which  will  be developed  and discussed at our workshop between representatives of the public and private sector in charge of urban planning and mobility from Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherland and United Kingdom.

To give substance to the discussion the following guest speakers will explain their vision on the subject illustrated by case studies. ULI Belgium is pleased to welcome:
