Het Universitair Centrum voor Ontwikkelingssamenwerking (UCOS) is a recognized NGO for development education that has been active for 20 years. Its target audience consists of Dutch speaking students, more specifically from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and the University Association of Brussels (UAB). UCOS focuses on vision development in relation to sustainable and equitable development. The organisation offers accompanied familiariazation journeys and cultural exchange projects.

With UCOS, we set-up Maono, a project to zoom in on images of the futures in 02012, 02013 and 02014. Three groups of students and young adults from Brussels and Lubumbashi work together with a dozen artists to create a collection of artistic images of the futures.
