Radis-Marolles, activating social, housing and education policies
The Social Cohesion Project (PCS) “Radis-Marolles” facilitates and strengthens the implementation of collective action for the inhabitants of Marolles, a historically poor neighbourhood of Brussels. The project is led by and for its inhabitants. It aims to support them in building projects by facilitating the involvement of other institutions in order to open up the area to the outside world. It also aims to inform and encourage access to lifelong learning for all of its inhabitants. For instance it offers after-school activities for children as well as activities for adults and seniors such as information sessions, cultural and sporting activities, language courses or cooking classes. The PCS “Radis Marolles” works with various social, health and youth organisations such as the Collective of Women, Entraide Marolles, the City of Brussels, the Belgian Federation of Youth Clubs (FMJ), the “Bureau International de la Jeunesse” (BIJ), etc. It allowed backing for many initiatives and contributes to furthering access to lifelong learning and the active participation of all in the life of the city. Contact2103 in partnership with SORELO (Company of Social Housing) developed this project with the support of the Region of Brussels.
