ULI Belgium

The Urban Land Institute is a global non-profit education and research institute supported by its members. Its mission is to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide. Established in 1936, the Institute has almost 40,000 members in 82 countries representing all aspects of land use and development disciplines.

ULI has been active in Europe since the early 1990s and today we have over 2,600 members across 27 different countries. ULI Europe has a particularly strong presence in the major European real estate markets of the UK, Germany, France and the Netherlands but is also active in emerging markets such as Turkey and Poland.

A message from Marnix Galle, ULI Belgium Chair

One of ULI Belgium’s top priorities is to become a key influencer in the Belgian real estate landscape.  As an organisation, we have the potential to find realistic solutions to local problems—solutions that will allow us to have cities that are more vibrant, dense, attractive and innovative.

To help realise this potential, increasing awareness of ULI in Belgium is essential.  To raise our public profile, we aim to focus our programming on important local issues, stage large-scale events that attract diverse audiences, and foster partnerships with local organisations.  Through effective and inspiring programming, we hope the public will learn about ULI’s mission, what it offers members, and what it brings to our communities.

We could not achieve these goals without members who play an active role in shaping our programmes and initiatives.  If you are interested in becoming more involved with ULI Belgium, please e-mail belgium@uli.org.
