It aims at providing urban social movements – including local residents, activists, artists, researchers – with space in vacant buildings where they can start of their activities.

Precare encourages owners to allow temporary use of their unoccupied buildings; to raise awareness about the fact that an empty good, even for a few weeks, could allow an individual or a group to realise a project, stage a performance, initiate a research project or create a meeting place. Precare was initially started in Brussels in 1999.
