Ghent: a city with a mission

Together, we make the transiton to an even better Ghent for our future generations.

The mission describes where the city stands for and aims for in the coming years. It's a compass for policy making to which the City and its partners are aligning their strategy.

The mission of Ghent:

“Ghent is a proud city where people like to live, work and relax.

It’s a city that breathes and lets breathe.
Everyone is as much different and as much Ghentian.

Childeren are given space to grow up here.

People get chances to deploy their talents.

In Ghent we experiment and we take action.
We are open to the world.

We make the city together.
And we make the
transiton to an even better Ghent for our future generations.”
