Economic Transition Week consists of a series of events organised by Brussels Environment, Brussels Economy Employment, Innoviris and hub.brussels. It will bring together the stakeholders of the Brussels economic ecosystem to discuss the new regional economic transition strategy (SRTE).

A resilient and circular economy

Today's environmental challenges require a rethink of our urban development, production and consumption models to bring them into line with the city's vital functions. Brussels' economic actors, such as companies, public institutions and business federations, will be invited to question how they can be part of the economic transition. Various events will address the tools and principles needed for a local, regenerative, decarbonised and resource-saving economy.

A social and democratic economy

To meet the needs of everyone living in the region, the Brussels economy must seek to reduce forms of social inequality and injustice. Economic Transition Week will address issues such as participatory and democratic governance and the social economy.

What can you expect during this week? Economic Transition Week will host events such as:

  • The conference on "The economy of tomorrow - What challenges and opportunities in the economic transition of the Brussels-Capital Region?", aimed at all Brussels economic actors wishing to learn, share their experiences, discuss obstacles and create synergies. This conference will be held at BEL, the Brussels Environment auditorium, on 23 November.
  • An afterwork event for Greenbizz's 5th anniversary on the theme of "Fail and grow", aimed at entrepreneurs and business leaders wishing to be inspired by their peers' transition experiences and to celebrate the Brussels incubator, on 25 November.

Together, let's shape the regional economy of tomorrow! Find out all about Economic Transition Week here!
