According to a recently published Trip Advisor survey of some 1,400 international travellers, Brussels is the most boring city in Europe. You can read more about that here.
I somehow found it quite hard to believe that Brussels makes only small efforts to invest in city development. Being the capital of Europe, I should think that Brussels has a responsibility to not only take a step up and show the way for city development itself – but also a responsibility to advance development of cities across the European continent.
All the best with the needed changes/renewal/development! I have one wish: Please don’t spend too many resources on too many meetings / too long discussions. Try out things instead - continuously. And get the people involved doing it.
