What if, suddenly, we were unable to draw power from the grid?

With the project La Pile, City Mine(d) prepares the Brussels Midi neighbourhood for the day electric power no longer has to come from kilometres away over the gigantic electricity grid.
Generating our own electricity, storing it for later use and sharing it with our neighbours are familiar ways of reducing our dependency of the grid. But which mix is the best form our neighbourhood? And how to make sure all are involved?

With a cooperative board game at BOZAR, La Pile maps out the options at neighbourhood and city level, and imagines scenarios that could better balance planet and electricity user.

It’s all hands on deck on Sunday 12 May!  We provide an inspiring environment and call upon your creative, technical, social and organisational ingenuity (indeed, an even brighter future is calling!).
