What about Open Vld?
We are your liberal political party. Open Vld in Brussels has an urban, pragmatic approach and tons of experience to back it up.
For the past 20 years, we have helped rebuild Brussels into an appealing city. We have made the Brussels Capital Region financially sound again. Perhaps not a sexy political achievement, but an important one. We were able to lower taxes on housing, working and entrepreneurship. We created tax incentives to make it attractive to buy a house in Brussels. We invested heavily by building a lot of schools. Unemployment has dropped considerably. Our metro system will be extended. The quality of city life greatly improves. And lastly, we managed to give Dutch an important place again within cosmopolitan and multilingual Brussels, alongside French and English.
What does urban liberalism stand for?
Our driving goal has always been the following: “How can we create a socially sound, urban policy while at the same time creating enjoyable living circumstances for the middle classes?”
We don’t base our policy on big theoretical approaches on diversity, poverty or environmental issues... We approach urban challenges one by one. And, important, we are optimists. We believe in the individual talents of Brussels’ population. To us, it’s not your background which counts, it’s your future.
A city brimming with opportunity and class.
We want to reward living, working and entrepreneurship in the city, through an urban discount. We want to improve day-to-day living circumstances in Brussels and create a city which helps to set free and which offers opportunities for everyone.
