I am very committed to the citizenship of residence and European citizenship, and the voting of foreigners.

As non-Belgians, this engagement also strengthens our anchoring in Brussels, our city.

Getting involved for Ecolo-Groen Ixelles means committing to greater transparency, ethics, sustainable development, the fight against social and environmental inequalities and the fight against climate change and air pollution.

My favorite topics on which I have been able to invest myself within and outside the municipal council, and those for which I wish to continue working are:


- The fight for better air quality - a dossier in which I was one of the initiators of the Brussels citizens' movement www.cleanairbxl.be and involved with the www.bruxselair.org

- Better and more organic alimentation in school canteens, CPASs and homes

- Soft mobility and cycling

- Sport and maintenance of communal infrastructures: communal swimming pool and stadium

- Citizenship, history and memory in school education – e.g. I was at the initiative of the ceremony in memory of Simone Veil on 18 July last on the eponymous agora in front of the European Parliament in Ixelles

As a defender of democracy, I am one of the founders of the Brussels citizens' movement for the right of non-Belgian Brussels citizens to vote in regional elections.
