Our village centres are the beating heart of society. A combination of different activities and functions makes them lively and attractive places. Places with space for bringing people together, but also for chance encounters.
Core strengthening therefore calls for a thoughtful trade policy with fertilisation between different domains. To support local governments VLAIO appointed a team of experts.
This team of seasoned innovative thinkers guides more than 100 municipalities and cities in Flanders and advises on vacancy management, new retail concepts, spatial planning, urban logistics...
Endeavour focuses on connecting communities, is committed to creating centres of experience, (re)filling vacant properties and exploring innovative partnerships and cooperatives.
Together with local authorities, traders and residents, we look for starting points, propose concrete actions and set up experiments.
