The event will begin with a ‘Long Short Walk’ from Schuman Roundabout to the Parc Cinquantenaire. NGOs, associations, the transport stakeholder community, and the general public are warmly invited to join the walk and to show their support for pedestrian safety.
The European Commissioner for Transport, Siim Kallas, has confirmed his participation. Participants should gather at 16:00 at Schumann Roundabout where there will be an opportunity for photos and interviews. To register your involvement, please do so here or on facebook.
