Open dialogue on Brussels Airport's future
The Strategic Vision 2040 for Brussels Airport is intended to get the airport and Belgium ready for the future. It is essential in this regard to strike the right balance between the economic potential and social development of the airport and their impact on the environment.
To achieve this, Brussels Airport opts for an open and structured dialogue with a group consisting of people living in the neighbourhood, municipalities, companies and experts under the name "Forum 2040". The first session was held 27 September 2017.

An independent jury has selected 80 participants from more than 230 candidates to participate in the dialogue sessions for Forum 2040. With this choice, the jury has ensured a balanced representation between the candidates based on their motivation, their place of residence and their profile.
This diversely composed group will meet at various times during 2017 to discuss the Strategic Vision 2040. The intention is to go into the details of the plan and gain a better understanding of the different points of view of all parties concerned. Different sessions are organised on the following themes: mobility, landside development and airside development. Honorary-ambassador Lode Willems is the chairman of these discussions.
We have deliberately opted for a transparent and proactive approach towards all stakeholders. The participants in the dialogue group can ask for clarification on the content of the Strategic Vision, and offer their opinions and suggestions.
Thus the vision will be enriched with external insights arising from the dialogue between the various members.
In addition to the creation of this dialogue group, the airport would like to enter into a broad dialogue with all of you. Ask us your questions through this website or our social media and you can expect an answer from us. We will also publish frequently-asked or specific questions together with the answers on this website.
Brussels Airport aims to build its Strategic Vision 2040 based on a balanced approach. For this, broad, open dialogue is necessary. On the one hand in a diversely composed group of people living in the neighbourhood, municipalities, civil society organisations, companies and experts - and on the other hand, with anyone who has a question or comment about the Strategic Vision 2040 of Brussels Airport. By bringing to light the various interests for everyone, opportunities can be sought to make the plan more sustainable and create social support for the long-term development of Brussels Airport.
