Since the creation of the first Brussels citizens collective on road safety 1030/0 in Schaerbeek in 2017, eight other municipalities in Brussels have mobilised local citizens for safer streets. This led to the creation of action groups in Evere, Sint-Gillis and Koekelberg, among others. Today, a new regional movement Heroes for Zero has been brought to life. The new non-profit citizen organisation aims to influence politics by shifting public debates, inform policy-making and raise funds to support local activists.
We want safe roads. Zero deaths, zero seriously injured.
We want a city that puts the social life of its inhabitants above the convenience of car drivers.
We want a city that encourages active mobility and strives to reduce air pollution.
We want a transition that is socially just and takes into account the most vulnerable. A city that works for children is a city that works for everybody.
We are a not for profit organisation, vzw/asbl. All members are citizens who are concerned about road safety.
