VUB survey investigates the use of Ter Kamerenbos

VUB survey investigates the use of Ter Kamerenbos

Whether to keep the Ter Kamerenbos open for traffic or to close it off was at the centre of a heated debate over the past weeks. In collaboration with the Brussels Studies Institute (BSI), researchers from VUB and ULB are therefore launching a survey to map the use of the parc. The questionnaire includes questions about the current use of the Ter Kamerenbos, the wishes for its future, mobility habits and the use of green spaces.

Da Schio: "With the survey we hope to get a better knowledge of the people for and against, and what their motivations are. This information can be useful for the groups and parties on both sides and can enable them to better express their claims. With the results that  the debate is more nuanced and less polarised”.

The questionnaire can be completed in Dutch, French and English and takes about 5-10 minutes to complete. The questionnaire is anonymous and the data will be processed in an aggregate manner. The results will be published early 2021.

About Press - Vrije Universiteit Brussel

Vrije Universiteit Brussel is an internationally oriented university in Brussels, the heart of Europe. By providing excellent research and education on a human scale, VUB wants to make an active and committed contribution to a better society.

The World Needs You

The Vrije Universiteit Brussel assumes its scientific and social responsibility with love and decisiveness. That’s why VUB launched the platform De Wereld Heeft Je Nodig – The World Needs You, which brings together ideas, actions and projects based on six Ps. The first P stands for People, because that’s what it’s all about: giving people equal opportunities, prosperity, welfare, respect. Peace is about fighting injustice, big and small, in the world. Prosperity combats poverty and inequality. Planet stands for actions on biodiversity, climate, air quality, animal rights... With Partnership, VUB is looking for joint actions to make the world a better place. The sixth and last P is for Poincaré, the French philosopher Henri Poincaré, from whom VUB derives its motto that thinking should submit to nothing except the facts themselves. VUB is an ‘urban engaged university’, strongly anchored in Brussels and Europe and working according to the principles of free research.
