Interactive evening

EUROPAN opened the 16th competition round on the theme 'Living Cities' and presented the three new Austrian locations: Graz - Klagenfurt - Linz.

Susanne Eliasson/GRAU talked about her personal approach to the topic of ‘Living Cities’ based on her own projects. Maria Letizia Garzoli / Team "Learning from the Future" (E15 winner) addressed their reflections on the theme, focusing on how native communities can teach us a different mindset to relate to our environment.

The digital kick-off offered a bouquet of interactive formats. In dialogue with jurors, winners and site-partners, specific questions about the new E16 theme and the task of the respective sites had been discussed. Manifold information could be picked up in breakout rooms, from keynotes and in the EUROPAN Lounge, where former winners shared tips for taking part.
