King Philippe celebrated the 50th anniversary of Louvain-la-Neuve

King Philippe celebrates the 50th anniversary of the laying of the foundation stone of Louvain-la-Neuve by King Baudouin. Since then, the city has changed a lot...
Following the independence protest movements, the Catholic University of Leuven split in two in 1968. In 1970, Louvain-la-Neuve was founded and the Catholic University of Louvain-la-Neuve (literally, "Leuven-the-New") and its campus were established one year later... Yes, 50 years already!
On the occasion of this anniversary, King Philippe cycled to Louvain-la-Neuve, marking at the same time the official opening of the academic year 2021-2022.
La Libre writes "The trauma of the 1968 "Walen buiten" has turned into a real estate and academic success" and we would add that Louvain-la-Neuve can now be proud of its cultural wealth since -among other initiatives- the Hergé Museum opened its doors there in 2009.
