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.
