From 1 January to 30 June 2024, Belgium holds the Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
Policy competences are assigned to the federal, regional and community authorities. The Brussels-Capital Region will chair the ‘Environment’ and ‘Urban Policy’ Councils.
‘Urban Policy’ is coordinated by Minister-President Rudi Vervoort, Secretary of State Ans Persoons and perspective.brussels, in close collaboration with the Brussels-Capital Region's Permanent Representation to the EU, Brussels International and urban.brussels.
In this way, during the Belgian Presidency, urban is making a substantial contribution to the official events on this topic and to the Brussels Declaration "A European urban policy fit for the future" for the large cities and regions.
