We all continue facing the pandemic and its consequences; hopefully, with the vaccination campaign, we will soon see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Nevertheless, as you can imagine, Belgium cannot guarantee that the European sanitary situation at the beginning of April this year will be good enough in order to organise a safe JEC; and this without considering possible travel restrictions, quarantines... Organising or participating to implies that financially liable commitments have to be taken weeks before; therefore, Belgium is obliged to postpone the 2021 JEC.
In addition to this, and apart from the fact that it appears too early to reprogramme it in September 2021, as already communicated in the past, autumn is a very difficult period for organising in Wallonia, especially in 2021 because the pandemic also had an impact on the hunting opportunities.
After having consulted the JEC founding nations (AUT, FRA, GBR, GER, SUI) and considering that Germany has objective reasons for organising in 2022, Belgium proposes the following:
. 2021 nothing or an "informal" organisation (i.e. that could be planned and organised in a few weeks) when the sanitary situation will have considerably improved
. 2022 Germany
. 2023 Belgium
. 2024… to be discussed in 2021 among the 6 organising nations
Hoping that the situation will soon improve, we wish you all an early and safe restart of your orienteering activities.

With regret, as a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic, the organising committee of the JEC 2020 in Belgium decided to postpone the JEC 2020 to the Easter week-end 2021 according to the hereafter schedule :
- Friday 2 April 2021 : welcome and model event
- Saturday 3 April 2021 : Sprint in Durbuy
- Sunday 4 April 2021 : Long Distance in Baraque de Fraiture
- Monday 5 April 2021 : Middle Distance in Lierneux & Prize giving Ceremony
"Spectators races" will be organised during the JEC 2021.
This postponement decision has been taken after having consulted and having received the agreement of the other 5 founding nations of the JEC (FRA-SUI-AUT-GER-GBR)
All the next years JEC move by one year:
JEC 2021 Belgium
JEC 2022 Germany
JEC 2023 England
JEC 2024 Austria
JEC 2025 Switzerland
JEC 2026 France
Very soon, our website http://jec2020.frso.be/ will be updated and put in 2021 version.

We have just been informed that the access to the Camp Roi Albert will no longer be granted (military trainings foreseen). We therefore have to turn to our reserve area: the Baraque de Fraiture. The accommodation remains unchanged. The distance between the accommodation and the Baraque de Fraiture is 33 km using a main road. Plenty of parking facilities.
