“Let's celebrate diversity and build an inclusive society together!”
INSIDE OUT AALST: 'LOOK AALST IN THE EYES'
SEPTEMBER 2021 | 69 PORTRAITS
The city of Aalst, Belgium, is a very diverse city. About 1 in 4 inhabitants is of foreign origin. This diversity brings along a lot of beauty and perspectives for society, but also many challenges. Persons of foreign origin face a lot of struggles; f.ex. 67% of the underprivileged families are of non-Belgian origin. The combination of facing struggles of discrimination and living in poverty, makes it extremely difficult to participate fully in society.
It is important to reconnect with each other. Let's celebrate our differences and work on equal chances for all citizens of Aalst.
