Canal it up

We aim for a clean plastic-free canal in Brussels where nature has its place

IS THERE A PROBLEM?

Yes. The canal at the heart of Brussels has to face a constant stream of garbage, a lack of nature and a bad water quality.

HOW DO WE WANT TO INTERVENE?

RAISING AWARENESS

Every week we go fishing for trash with our kayaks, always taking along a new person.

INSTALLING A TRASH BARRIER

We are currently working on the installation of a permanent structure, to be placed close to the Molenbeek lock, to stop the trash and take it out of the water.

GREENING THE CANAL

We propose to give nature its place back in the canal to transform it into a green and pleasant environment for people and animals through the installation of vegetalised islands.

IMPROVING WATER QUALITY

Tackling the problem of the sewage overflows would allow to drasically improve the water quality of the canal.

RECYCLING

We are exploring creative solutions to recycle the trash collected in the canal.

Fishing for plastic in the canal of Brussels has always been your dream?
