C.A.R.E. Belgium


In 2016, following the wave of attacks in Europe, notably the Bataclan in Paris and Zaventem & Maelbeek in Brussels, we realised that our population was not equipped to deal with this type of event. The world is facing new threats: cyber attacks, terrorism, cybercrime, etc. The Jewish community in Belgium has been dealing with this type of attack for a long time, and we have developed expertise in this area. As the threat has become global, so has the need to raise awareness. Our aim is not only to enable every citizen to protect themselves and their children but also to create a new generation of citizens who are more aware of and responsible for their own security. For collective safety, we all need to be vigilant as individuals: children, parents, uncles, aunts, grandparents, friends…

This is how C.A.R.E. (Community Awareness Resilience Education) came into being in 2019. It’s a programme set up by the CGS with the help of safety experts, psychologists, school teachers and academics. C.A.R.E. is designed to increase vigilance and raise awareness among all citizens.


Through C.A.R.E., their aim is for every citizen to be able to identify and respond to suspicious activity, danger or attack. Every citizen will feel strengthened and reassured by the knowledge acquired during the programme.


C.A.R.E. is proposing different types of training using tools that are very simple to understand and use, they give you the ability to identify danger and respond appropriately, each according to your means.

In addition to the safety provided by the police, they firmly believe that ‘Knowledge is power’, which is why they have decided to offer a tailor-made programme for every segment of the population: adults, children, teenagers, students, the elderly, communities, etc.
