The Europan 14 Forum of Cities and Juries took place on October 20th and 21th, 2017 in Helsinki, Finland. It was the occasion for the cities participating to the 14th session of the competition and the national juries granting the prizes to meet at the European scale and discuss about a shortlist of projects.
One of the main goals was to create a common culture for the experts involved in the projects evaluation before making the final choice, during a second session of the national juries. This Forum was therefore the chance for structured and informal exchanges between the juries and sites representatives, the latter delegating to the former the choice of the winning teams.
Organised by Europan Europe and Europan Suomi-Finland, with the participation of the national secretaries and in partnership with the city of Helsinki, the Forum enabled participants to discover, through guided tours, the two productive neighbourhoods of Kalasatama and of Jätkäsaari/Hernesaari, before taking part in workshops introducing the preselected projects. The Forum came to an end, in the afternoon, with lectures and debates on site scales and implementation processes.
On Friday night, delegations and participants were invited to a reception in the delightful frame of the Valkoinen sali.
The official results announcement will be made on December 1st, 2017, at 9:00 (GMT+1).
