The public turned up in numbers to celebrate 30 years of Beliris

This weekend, Beliris celebrated its 30th anniversary by inviting the public to a festive weekend. From a concert in a swimming pool and a Ninja Warrior aquatic obstacle course to an introduction to tightrope walking, a host of extraordinary and original activities awaited young and old alike. Around 10 000 people took advantage of the many attractions on offer in a number of Brussels neighbourhoods and communes.

Beliris, a collaboration between the Federal Government and the Brussels-Capital Region for construction, renovation and heritage restoration projects in the capital, is celebrating its 30th anniversary. Since its creation, Beliris has undertaken hundreds of large-scale projects, representing a total investment of €2.6 billion in a wide range of fields: mobility, social housing, green spaces, neighbourhood regeneration, culture, heritage, sport, etc.

A weekend of festivities

To mark its 30th anniversary, Beliris, in collaboration with visit.brussels and a number of Brussels communes, organised a series of original, fun activities based on its key projects. The activities took place in several areas of the capital, divided into six zones: the Canal Zone (City of Brussels), the Central Zone (City of Brussels), the Josaphat Zone (Schaerbeek), the Couronne Zone (Ixelles), the Jourdan Zone (Etterbeek) and the Heyvaert Quarter (Molenbeek).

Throughout the weekend, a wide range of activities awaited visitors. Sports, concerts, dance classes, exhibitions, guided tours, circus initiations – all tastes and age groups were catered for, there was something for everyone.

The weekend was a true celebration for no fewer than 10 000 people who came to enjoy the many activities on offer. It was a wonderful opportunity to showcase the work of Beliris, an institution that has become a key player in the capital's major renovation projects.
