Video Plan B Josaphat (ENG/NL/F)
For the project "Commoning Europe", BRAL made an English version of the video "Plan B Josaphat". A network of citizens, neighbourhood comittees and urban movements wants to protect the brownfield Josaphat, North of Brussels. In this video, they reach out to the regional government of Brussels to make a new plan together to save this gem of Brussels' biodiversity. Their main principle is simple: save nature where it is and expand the city where it is grey.
Commoning Europe wants to propell the rediscovery the public good as the foundation of Europe. Working together to preserve land and nature and to keep it in public hands is one of the examples, cristalized in the effort to save Josaphat. https://commoning.eu/ The English translation of the video was cofunded by the Erasmus programme of the European Union.
Plan B Josaphat is a collaboration between ARAU, BRAL, Bruxelles Nature, collectif Bas Les PAD, Comité Leopold III, Comité Mediapark, Josaph’aire, Natagora, Natuurpunt Brussel, Sauvons La Friche Josaphat, Sauvons le parc Avenue des Jardins, and author David Van Reybrouck. The video was made by the Brussels collective Dérive.
