Place 8 - Brussels Parliament
I would like asbl (association sans but lucratif, a non-profit association) organisations with a social function to be able to continue to exist and to be supported. This is fully handing this over to them so that the diversity that we get from the many Centres Publics d’Action Sociale (CPAS) (centres for social services) can be an education in a realistic setting where it is not just about how people learn but also the attitudes that are hugely important.
Sonja Bellon is in charge of running a social economy company. She would like more cafes and comfortable terrasses along the canal, as there are along the river in Berlin. The BILOBA Huis de Schaerbeek has a special place in her heart. BILOBA is a place where elderly people from all walks of life in the Brabant region can meet and also includes social housing for senior adults. Her favourite subjects are integration, training and getting people active on the job market. In her free time, Sonja loves going on walks and cooking. Good to know, Sonja.
