Ghent, my living town.
Ghent is a wonderful city to live in and to be proud of, sparkling of social and cultural life by a large amount of associations with  companies, theatre and music groups, festivals and festivities, initiatives and combative people; also Transition Towns movement was launched at the end of 2008.
 Disadvantage is the priority to the renewal of the historical centre, while 1/4 of the Ghent inhabitants is still living in poor conditions in the 19the century belt. In the last couple of years this trend has reversed; the city government now focuses slightly on the more disadvantaged neighbourhoods.
