About Babel

Brussels changed greatly those last few years, turning into a modern and cosmopolitan megapolis. In no other European city meet so many different cultures, ethnic groups and religions. We are witnessing those changes, the rapid evolution of the city and its social and economic realities. We aim at encouraging reflection on how to improve the "living together" and make the society more inclusive and equal.
