aims to promote multilingualism in Brussels.
Our city has 1.2 million inhabitants, who speak more than 100 different languages. The advantages of multilingualism are numerous. In addition to the opportunities it opens up in the labour market, multilingualism promotes cohesion among the people of Brussels.
In our super-diverse city and beyond, speaking several languages is important for shared citizenship and the mutual understanding it requires.
Multilingualism is now a central ingredient of Brussels' identity and will be even more so in the future.
