This mechanism of no solidarity is not the issue today. The issue is how we can work together to
save the planet to make sure that everyone can live in a healthy
environment. Real progress would be that the investments and energy that now go into securing the borders would be invested in
other things like finding methods to be able to live
together on a worldwide scale. In Brussels we have to go towards other ways of policymaking and involve the citizens in the decision-making process of the city. A lot of citizens are involved in their neighborhood, in their street, in their city on a small scale but this is a very important scale for people. We have to find ways to valorize the efforts that people are making, valorize the fact that people are in solidarity with each other. And to see how we can change it into policy and ways of living that are decided by the citizens themselves. The neighbors are nice and when they need help, we help them. But with people coming across borders
this empathy is often missing. It’s really important to be able to put yourself in the place of someone else, to understand the others and to not
judge them. We see very often that people
are being judged and I don’t understand why. There’s a good evolution in the arts to open up and trying to reach people who will not come by themselves
to see the performances or the theatre pieces. Social artistic organizations play an important role to link the different groups of citizens, groups that might think they are not
interested in the arts or they think it’s nothing for them These organizations make a link that is interesting both for the art sector as for the citizens.
