Europan's objective is to assist the young architects of Europe in developing their ideas and disseminating them on strategic sites proposed by municipalities or developers.
The general topic of Europan, European urbanity, answers to a demand of European citizens. «Urbanity» is a common way of living the city but also a will to reflect upon the heterogeneity of its forms related to the diversity of uses, and to create public spaces to favour encounters among people in places they share.
Today, Europan takes place in 19 countries and has partnerships with 3 more countries.

EUROPAN is a federation of contests for urban-architectural ideas, held simultaneously in order to achievements. It is organized in twenty European countries every two years, with a theme, a regulation and a common timing, and from urban concrete situations.


- Provide access to the mission for young European designers

- Promote ideas and concepts on the transformation of territories

- Assist communities in a spirit of research and experimentation on real sites

- Share these experiences through meetings and debates in Europe



Europan-Belgium is a non-profit association, member of Europan-Europe, financed and supported since 1991 by the Walloon Region.


Hello !

The 13th Europan competition edition is on its way.

Europan Belgium is glad to announce that 62 projects had been handed in on the Libramont's (18) and Charleroi's (44) sites.

During this session, the members of the Belgian jury, to whom will join two jurors delegated by Europan Switzerland, will also have to judge the 19 projects received for the Geneva’s site.

Our jurys, composed by national and international personalities of high prestige - whose list is given on the Europan-Europe web site -, will meet as soon as next October for the first session in order to pre-select the projects.

As a preamble to the first session of our jury, Europan Belgium, in association with the "Maison de l'Urbanité", and in collaboration with the DGO4, will hold next Thursday, October 1 a seminar on "Planning of sustainable projects - Public Spaces structuring". Several members of our jury will be speaking, along with other international players in order to address these issues, close to concerns of our competition. This seminar will take place at the Géode, Charleroi. To register at the seminar, please go on the DGO4's site (tab "Inscriptions").
