Depicting new narratives for Brussels

Images of the future inspire and can shape societies. Starting from your questions about the city, we explore what might come next. Every six months we select one question to work around, together with citizens, entrepreneurs, experts and creatives. With them, we choose the futures we prefer and turn them into stories.

Current exploration

Social cohesion meets green utopia

The goals are clear, solutions are there, we know that a fast transition to a climate neutral society will have to happen. But how do we make sure that everyone will benefit from the shift to a climate-proof Brussels?

Dive into our research


These future stories about Brussels are the result of our researches and dreams of the future. They are made with creatives and artists from the city.

We are an independent project without any political agenda; what makes us get up in the morning are following beliefs:

  • Futures are there to inspire and empower, they are not set in stone or for granted.
  • Clarity within complexity is what we need.
  • We sense and do, and are proud of our imperfections.
  • We act Brussels, but think global.
  • Every voice counts, that's why our ears are open to all of you.
  • Together we do better.


To put the diversity of Brussels at the core of what we do, we are developing 'FêteDivers: 100 eyes on Brussels'. Do you want to be one of the 50 people of this project? Let us know!
