Facilitateur Quartiers Durables
Public services, urban planning & architecture.
The Region of Brussels is undergoing a number of highly complex urban development projects, presenting a vast range of opportunities to improve conditions in the city. Years of poorly integrated projects, popularised internationally by the term ‘Brusselisation’, have particularly resulted from a lack of collaboration amongst public institutions, insufficient vision and a lack of capacity to deal with complex problems.
Osmos was a partner of the Facilitator for Sustainable Neighbourhoods team. The facilitators’ role was developed to provide a holistic vision on urban development based on ten themes to allow Brussels’ regional institutions and local municipality to collaborate in defining their ambition and expectations. Furthermore, through a bespoke analysis and evaluation tool, developers and designers are provided clear guidelines to ensure their projects can address a wide range of sustainability ambitions. We helped build the online platform, define the communication strategy, support with institutional collaboration and strategic projects.
