= Here to help citizen initiatives in Brussels be self sustainable organizes crowdfunding and transparent spending via Open Collective
"BrusselsTogether is a platform to help citizen initiatives in Brussels be self sustainable.
Each initiative has its own collective that can receive money independently. All the accounting is fully transparent. This helps donors trust the initiatives but it also helps collectives to learn from each other.
Why do we do what we do?
There are many people who are trying to bring Brussels to the 21st century. People who are trying to redefine mobility, education, environment, art, culture, etc.
Today, communities rely on competitive processes to get funding through subsidies. It's a distraction and it's not sustainable. There's got to be a better way.
That's what we want to explore with #BrusselsTogether. Can we recreate a city from the bottom up, with transparency, inclusiveness, and an experimentation spirit at its core? A city where everyone is invited to contribute? A city where everything is possible.
By contributing to the collectives below, you are helping the development of this new city. A city that invites its citizens to contribute. A city that makes it easy for them to create associations to improve the quality of life for all."
