VGC presents long-term policy plan 2021-2025: We make Brussels together


For the first time in the history of the VGC, ‘het College’ of the Flemish Community Commission (VGC) presents a strategic multi-year policy plan. This ambitious plan brings together all aspects of the VGC policy. The plan translates the policy choices into concrete objectives and actions for the coming years. The VGC went to work with the Brusseleirs and opened its doors to anyone who wanted to contribute to answering the challenges that Brussels faces today and tomorrow. Hundreds of Brussels residents, organizations and institutions from the N network and employees of the VGC administration provided ideas and recommendations. Many recommendations from the participation trajectory Stadspiratie, from the extensive Tour of Brussels for school teams and from the VGC advisory councils can be found as concrete actions in this long-term policy plan. In the plan, the recommendations from Stadspiratie and the Tour of Brussels are indicated by a specific logo. Read the long-term policy plan at

From ideas to policy proposals


During the online Brussels workshops, organisations and citizens discussed the more than 1100 ideas that were collected. In small groups they formulated policy proposals for the 6 themes that were addressed most in the ideas: Communication and information - Sustainable and liveable city - Learning - Participating and working together - Multilingualism - Growing up. With these policy proposals and all the ideas, we will get to work on the VGC's long-term plan for 2021-2025. Of course we will keep you up to date on the next steps and results from Stadspiratie. Be sure to keep an eye on this website and our Facebook-page!
