The forthcoming declaration has been named the ‘Citadel Statement’ for two strategic reasons:

  1. The word citadel is originally derived from the phrase ‘citta ideale’ or ‘ideal city’ and stands for a fortress that is used to protect a city.
  2. The launch event for the declaration will be in the Ghent Citadel Park on the site of a former fortress built at the beginning of the 19th century.

Therefore the Flemish Government hope to see many of you in the perfect place to launch an ideal cities statement – the site of the old Ghent Citadel.
