Place 3 - Flemish Parlement (effective)
We must give young people from poorer neighbourhoods more opportunities and policies must be for everyone!
Fewer cars in local neighbourhoods and more greenery in the centre – that is what Zeynep Balci is fighting for. She is also calling for policies to tackle poverty and homelessness issues. She wants all the young people from disadvantaged neighbourhoods to have better opportunities. As advisor to the sp.a, she works on issues of diversity and poverty. Zeynep is a political scientist and one of the people behind the #dailyracism and RegenboogRood [Rainbow Red], the sp.a’s LGBT+ [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender/Transsexual plus] network. She sees herself in the role of ambassador for Brussels, of her Brussels, and she will do everything to prove that our city is not a “hellhole”, a rathole. She is worried about depression and isolation, the evils of the 21st century. Zeynep adores boxing and climbing and likes to head out to discover secret corners of the city during her free time
