"As President of Efus, I am delighted that Brussels will be hosting the Security, Democracy & Cities conference, in partnership with safe.brussels."

Willy Demeyer

Mayor of Liège & President of Efus

"This conference is a key event for safe.brussels, and we are proud to be organising it in close collaboration with our privileged partner, Efus. Moreover, the conference is taking place at a highly symbolic time for us: the sad eighth anniversary of the terrorist attacks in Brussels, as well as Belgium's presidency of the Council of the European Union. These events reinforce the importance of this conference and remind us of the need to work together to ensure security and democracy in our cities." 

Sophie Lavaux 

Governor of the Brussels Conurbation, and director general of safe.brussels
