We are JES. Above all, we want children and young people to feel empowered and at home in the city. We organize activities and projects in leisure, education, work, training and welfare. Together with children, young people and partners, we build the city of tomorrow. Brussels is a young city, with the Canal Zone as an outstanding example. For years, JES has been supporting youngsters in taking their place in the city. This walk will take you from Tour en Taxi to Ninoofse Poort to look back on 20 years of practice around the Canal Zone. You will discover the role young people and youth organizations have played in reshaping this urban area. We will discuss today’s practice, with (cultural) participation and urban leadership at the core. And together we will look ahead and dream about how a cultural capital could be a motor for urban development with youth at its heart. This walk starts at the main entrance of Gare Maritime. See you there on Friday 08 July at 10:00.
