Companies, organizations, universities and the Province of Antwerp endorse the Antwerp Partnership for Sustainability with their signatures.

In 2019, the 'Antwerp Partnership for Sustainability' (APS) took a number of important steps towards achieving the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In order to do so, 75 students of AP University College Antwerp were dropped today in a vacant student dorm and had to find their way out of varying simulated fire situations. The million-dollar question: can smart buildings save lives?
