How would Brussels look without cars? What if parking spots are converted into areas of creativity and conviviality? You are invited to explore the possibilities and give your own suggestions during an event called “Park Spott” organized by Dott – the micro mobility startup that aims to improve the way we move around the city using their free-floating fleet of colorful trottinettes. The event will take place on the 14th and 15th June on Place du Chatelain.
The mobility of the future is getting shaped today. Imagine Brussels without cars, without noise, without CO2, without stress… A city where, for example, car parks would be transformed into convivial green spaces? How would that look like? Dott, the first European micro-mobility start-up proposes to live the experience during their “eco-demo-artistic” event. During two days, the artist Musketon will put citizen’s words and ideas into illustrations… all with an artistic support of the Air Ink – the ink created from the air pollution!
Mobility, a vital issue for Brussels
Every day, thousands of commuters enter Brussels by car, adding up to thousands of city cars and numerous delivery vehicles. All of this for sometimes very small distances. Additionally, a good 70% of the public space is always dedicated to the car…
It is undeniable fact that all of this results in increased stress, noise, and degradation of air quality and life in general.
This is why the Brussels Region makes mobility as the vital issue. The Regional Mobility Plan draft was approved at first reading by the Brussels government on 4th April 2019. And now, the “Good Move” plan is launched: a participative approach to finding innovative solutions together.
It is true that mobility is everyone’s business and it starts with innovative ideas. This is the bet that the two creators of the Dott company had five months ago when they launched shares electric scooters on the European market.
Focusing on ultra-mobile green ways of transportation, like shared scooters and e-bikes, a fun and convenient experience for city-dwellers is our way of moving, reducing the number of cars in the city, says Maxim Romain, CEO and co-founder of Dott.
Join the PARK SPOTT event by Dott – three parking spaces will be turned into a creative and friendly space
Three parking spaces are already enough to create a green, cozy and friendly space! By creating “Park Spott”, Dott wants to show its vision of a car-free city through experience. Three parking spaces on the Place du Châtelain in Brussels will be reorganized into a green space for discussion and discoveries around micro-mobility! There will be an “eco-friendly” corner to land and drink a healthy refreshment. Also, there will be a “demo” corner to test and indulge in the joys of the electric scooter, with emphasis on the proper use of the machine. Lastly, you will notice a corner dedicated to “interactive art” where the artist Musketon will make the buzz for 2 days! The artist Bert Dries will transform live the vision of citizens on the topic “Brussels without a car” and express it in words and images on a large artistic wall.
Finally, to push the eco-friendly approach to the end, this interactive artistic event with the citizen on micromobility will be colored with a very special ink…
The French duo – Maxim Romain and Henri Moissinac founded Dott in Amsterdam in December 2018. Their idea? To provide European cities and citizens with safe, environmentally friendly and sustainable mobility solutions. They created their limited-speed electric scooters, equipped with 10″ larger wheels for better handling, a dual braking system and a wider platform for greater stability. Dott offers a responsible approach with 100% trained professional teams who recharge the electric scooters in secure places and ensure their maintenance. This approach allows the respect of the conditions of safety and a control of quality. Dott scooters are made to last, regularly controlled and its parts are also recyclable.
For Dott, with means like the shared electric scooter, the public space still trusted by the car today could be released and reclaimed by locals and pedestrians. Demonstration on June 14th and 15th, Place du Châtelain in Brussels!
