About the project
This dynamic, interactive, crossmedia experience tells the stories of urban trees and allows you to participate in all kinds of ways. It invites anyone: schools, families, walkers, tourists… to join the adventure of discovering the forest that’s growing, right here in our city.
Explore and be amazed
Wood Wide Web invites you to open your eyes: look at Brussels as if it were a forest. Through the map and various entries, you can explore it and (re)discover the trees in the city, their stories and specific qualities. The aim is to inspire a sense of wonder: discover their beauty, their role and their character, both inside and out.
Encounter Connect
Wood Wide Web builds links between trees and a diverse range of players in the cultural, social, scientific and institutional worlds. This community nourishes the growth of the urban forest and offers a whole series of activities around and beneath the trees. Anyone can get involved in these activities in the field.
Contribute Drive growth
We invite you to join the adventure. You, too, can add your favourite tree and your media content for others to enjoy. We hope that you will be inspired to join us in helping this urban forest to thrive: you can adopt a tree (or several), take care of a tree, or even plant new ones.

The community : Actors in the forest
Our project will only be meaningful if it is a group effort. In time, a whole range of associations, schools, institutions, collectives, artists, media, etc. will find one another on Wood Wide Web.
They place the tree and the forest at the centre of their activity or action. Together, we offer activities in the field: to go out and discover new trees and like-minded people.
