When everyone talks about change, you make it happen!

14 workshops to reinvent your city in English / French / Dutch.
September 22 - 23

English After Barcelona, Warsaw and New York, Brussels joins the family of cities hosting a "municipalist" summit. Fearless Cities is a two day conference designed to discuss the "municipalist" way to manage the city. Municipalist programs tend to be focussed on the specific needs of city’s residents in order to dream and co-create programs that take care for them: let's use this moment to take notes and truly listen to what brussels diverse people and activists organisations have to say.

Policy making can happen bottom up and feminist. Join us and dare to imagine a new city system by unlocking the transformative city- making power we all have. Participate in practical workshops to learn fresh ways to live the city, powered by local and international leaders of movements that are transforming society from below.

There will be an introductory plenary session, followed by 7 workshops per day by topics. Check the program at the event’s website. At the end of the day, the main points from the workshops will be harvested and joined up at the final plenary session. Also expect great food and unexpected artistic interventions that will keep the positive energy flowing.

What the summit aims at?
  • Inspire participants to reflect on democracy: encourage them to become fearless about getting involved in public life. take responsibility for building what they need for a healthy public space and quality public services.
  • To discover activist initiatives operating in multiple languages that are bridging communities: across Brussels’ communes, in Belgium across 3 regions and in the adjacent countries.
  • To learn about what is happening around the world when it comes to municipalism, democratic alternatives, feminist politics etc.
  • To connect people and organisations from the different communities of Brussels, Belgium and beyond to share their visions and strengthen their activism for a different kind of politics for the city – based on hope, solidarity, justice, equality, inclusion, love and ultimately care for people and planet
  • To make responsive and responsible change and adaptation the way politics happen in Brussels. Brussels politics must become responsibly rooted in the everyday reality of its inhabitants.
  • Political decision-making to create spaces for participation and empowerment of citizen engagement, so Brussels can emerge from the Brusseleirs’ visions for their city.
  • To use the upcoming local (regional and European) elections as the incredible opportunity they are to not only call for, but to enforce -through the vote- more democracy into our system.
  • Discover municipalism as a new way to structure ourselves to defend common goods.
  • Experience a new working method : participatory methods. a different approach to politics a way to do democratic debates in a new way. so that they can apply it in their own organizations.
  • Create a debate about the need to rethink the system.
  • Some synergies among participants: new projects might pop up

French Après Barcelone, Varsovie et New York, Bruxelles accueille à son tour un sommet "municipaliste". Fearless Cities est une conférence de deux jours visant à présenter et à débattre d’une approche "municipaliste" dans la gestion politique de la ville. Le municipalisme se concentre sur les besoins spécifiques des habitants de la ville, misant sur eux pour rêver et co-créer des programmes qui répondent véritablement à la vision qu’ils ont pour le futur de leur ville: “Fearless Cities” sera l’occasion de se mettre à l’écoute de ce que les différentes personnes et organisations actives à Bruxelles ont à dire.

La politique peut tout à fait être bottom-up et feministe. Rejoignez-nous et osons imaginer ensemble un nouveau système à l’échelle de notre ville, de meilleures idées pour la ville du futur. Participez à des ateliers pratiques pour connaître de nouvelles façons de vivre la ville, menés par des acteurs de mouvements locaux et internationaux qui s’activent à transformer la société de bas en haut

Après une séance plénière introductive ,7 ateliers différents auront lieu chaque jour Pour consulter le programme complet rendez-vous sur le site web de l'événement. Les conclusions de chaque atelier seront rassemblées pour un compte rendu lors de la session pléniaire de clôture.

  • Découvrir des initiatives citoyennes qui opérent au delà des barrières de langue, de façon synergique entre les multiples communes de Bruxelles, les trois régions de Belgique et les pays adjacents.
  • Se familiariser avec ce qui se passe dans le monde au niveau du municipalisme, des alternatives démocratiques, de la politique féministe et participative
  • Mettre en relation des personnes et des organisations des différentes communes de Bruxelles, de Belgique et d'ailleurs pour partager leurs visions et renforcer leur action en faveur d’une politique différente - basée sur l'espoir, la solidarité, la justice, l'égalité, l'inclusion, l'amour et, en fin de compte, le souci des personnes tout autant que de la planète.
  • Faire des propositions pour transformer la manière dont la politique se déroule à Bruxelles, en vue d’une politique bruxelloise qui s'enracine de manière responsable dans la réalité quotidienne de ses habitants.
  • Imaginer des espaces de participation qui puissent êtregarants de l'engagement des citoyens, afin que Bruxelles soit le résultat des visions que les Brusseleirs développent pour leur ville.
  • Utiliser l’opportunité des prochaines élections locales (régionales et européennes) pour non seulement réclamer, mais également implémenter par le vote - plus de démocratie dans notre système politique.
  • L’expérience de nouvelles méthodes de travail participatives, d’une approche différente de la politique et des débats démocratiques d'une nouvelle façon. afin de pouvoir les appliquer dans nos propres activités et organisations.
  • Nourrir le débat sur la nécessité de repenser notre système politique.
  • Générer des synergies entre les participants afin de favoriser l’émergence de nouveaux projets.

Découvrez le municipalisme comme une nouvelle façon de structurer la vie politique de notre ville afin de défendre et développer les biens qui nous sont communs!

Dutch Na Barcelona, ​​Warschau en New York vervoegt Brussel de steden die een 'municipalistische' top organiseren. Fearless Cities is een tweedaagse conferentie die is ontworpen om de 'municipalistische', participatieve manier te bespreken om de stad te besturen. Gemeentelijke programma's richten zich meestal op de specifieke behoeften van de inwoners van de stad om programma's te dromen en samen te stellen die voor hen zorgen: laten we dit moment gebruiken om aantekeningen te maken en echt luisteren naar wat verschillende Brusselse mensen en activistische organisaties te zeggen hebben.

Beleidsvorming kan bottom-up en feministisch gebeuren. Doe mee en ontwerp een betere stadsopbouw en werk mee aan betere ideeën voor de stad van de toekomst. Ontdek nieuwe manieren om je voor de stad te engageren. Neem deel aan praktische workshops, aangedreven door lokale en internationale leiders van bewegingen die de samenleving van onder naar boven veranderen.

Er zal een inleidende plenaire sessie zijn, gevolgd door 7 workshops per dag over relevante onderwerpen. Bekijk het programma op de website van het evenement. Aan het einde van de dag worden de belangrijkste punten van de workshops geoogst en samengebracht tijdens de laatste plenaire sessie. Verwacht ook geweldig eten en onverwachte artistieke interventies die de positieve energie zullen laten stromen.

Waarop richt deze top zich?
  • Inspireer deelnemers om na te denken over democratie: moedig aan om onbevreesd te raken over hun betrokkenheid bij het openbare leven. Neem verantwoordelijkheid voor het opbouwen van wat we nodig hebben voor een gezonde openbare ruimte en een hoogwaardige openbare dienstverlening.
  • Ontdek activistische initiatieven die werken in meerdere talen die gemeenschappen overbruggen: in de Brusselse gemeenten, in België in 3 regio's en in de aangrenzende landen.
  • Leer wat er in de wereld opborrelt waar het aankomt op municipalisme, democratische alternatieven, feministische politiek enz.
  • Verbind mensen en organisaties uit de verschillende gemeenschappen van Brussel, België en daarbuiten om hun visies te delen en hun activisme te versterken voor een ander soort politiek voor de stad - gebaseerd op hoop, solidariteit, rechtvaardigheid, gelijkheid, inclusie, liefde en uiteindelijk zorg voor mensen en planeet
  • Verander en verbeter de manier waarop politiek in Brussel gebeurt. De Brusselse politiek moet verantwoordelijk verankerd raken in de alledaagse werkelijkheid van zijn inwoners.
  • Creëer ruimtes voor participatie en empowerment van burgerbetrokkenheid in de politieke besluitvorming, zodat Brussel kan voortkomen uit de visies van de Brusseleirs voor hun stad.
  • Gebruik de komende lokale (regionale en Europese) verkiezingen als de ongelooflijke kans die we niet alleen nodig hebben, maar ook om via onze stemmen meer democratie in ons systeem af te dwingen.

Ontdek municipalisme als een nieuwe manier om onszelf te structureren om algemene hulpbronnen (commons) te verdedigen.

Verwacht resultaat: wat gebeurt er daarna een oogst van ideeën een nieuwe werkwijze ervaren: participatieve methoden een andere benadering van de politiek een manier om democratische debatten op een nieuwe manier te voeren, zodat we deze in onze organisaties kunnen toepassen. een debat op gang brengen over de noodzaak om ons systeem te herdenken synergieën tussen deelnemers vinden: er kunnen nieuwe projecten verschijnen
