Mpact is focusing on 2 concepts for its Belgian lighthouse within the G-PaTRA project:
- Mobipunten: the concept of mobipunten is currently being rolled out throughout the entire Flemish region. Within the work process of G-PaTRA, Mpact wishes to research whether and how this concept could work in more rural areas. Follow our progress on the official mobipunten website: mobipunt.be
- Quality neighbourhoods: with the experience from 2017 in the urban (Sint-Amandsberg) and semi-urban (Molenbergwijk Beveren-Waas) neighourhoods, Mpact experimented in 2018 with extending the concept into a more rural setting (Beveren-Aan-De-Ijzer). The results could be consulted in this toolkit for municipalities.
Since this is a learning process, the concept will also be further tested out in more urban areas (e.g. city of Aalst and the city of Mechelen). Afterwards, in collaboration with the municipality of Aalst, the possibility to scale up the process to the more rural areas is being looked at.
