The first Etats Generaux de l’Air de Bruxelles is an event combining a research symposiuym, a hackathon and a citizens’ day, with the objective of bringing together the different actors that are striving for a cleaner air, provide a platform for dialogue and collaboration, and discuss visions and solutions to realise a healthier city.

The citizens’ day, the international symposium, and the hackathon are likely to attract different audiences and to produce different discourses: bringing them together aims precisely to promote multiple learning loops, virtuous cycles of collaboration, and mutual empowering. The underlying concept, though, is to blur the boundaries between these through a series of activities that allow to break walls and offer possibilities of fruitful interactions.

Overall, the initiative will:

  • Raise awareness about the air pollution problem, the impact on health and on the environment, the drivers and the geographic distribution, the potential and the limits of existing solutions.

  • Bridge the gap between science & practice, by enhancing citizens’ and practitioners’ understanding of the science of air pollution, its potential and its limitation and uncertainties, and by providing the scientific community with an opportunity to hear and engage with societal concerns and questions

  • Contribute to the democratic process by empowering citizens through science, and by providing a venue for discussion and deliberation about their vision for a healthier and more liveable city.
