What we're about
Our Brussels air is often polluted and makes us sick, so sick that 632 people die each year prematurely. The air is so polluted that it is 80% over the safety level and European legislation is being breached. A good number of us, particularly the elderly and children, is suffering from severe respiratory conditions, heart and vascular diseases.
If we consider safe food and drinking water as a basic human right, we should equally have the ambition to give all citizens the right to clean air. We can't stop breathing.
We are a Brussels citizen movement and we firmly believe that a healthy city is possible and would make our capital a much more attractive place to live, work, visit and move around.
If you believe so too, let our Brussels policy makers know by signing this petition for clean air (https://www.change.org/p/rudi-vervoort-laat-brussel-op-adem-komen-faisons-respirer-bruxelles-for-more-ambition-on-air-quality).
Let's work together towards a breathable city!
