Recent developments


In 2020, ten years after its launch, the THIERRY eco-campus was given a new destination, for a duration limited to 5 years, becoming the campus of a new school active in another education field, the Nicolas Gilbert School for Malletiers. That change aligns with the THIERRY school's "Plan 2020-2025" that induced an intentional operational standstill of the leadership degree programs offered by the institution. Yet, by 2025 the leadership school proper will in effect have discreetly morphed into an entirely new shape and programs' offering, therewith preparing a still more impressive accomplishment of its mission. More information about that peculiar transformation will be released at a later stage.


Situated in the north-eastern part of the Belgian Ardennes, the eco-campus - also known as the THIERRY HOUSE and Outdoor Academy Ardennes - underwent progressive enhancements. The bicentennial mansion was enlarged in 2019, by a bold contemporary architecture, adding a cube-shaped course-rooms' extension.


When Nature and History inspire...


The THIERRY ecological or environmental campus, the eco-campus, came into being in 2010, replacing an earlier Brussels' urban campus project in Brussels. Already in the summer of 2004 the idea of a countryside type of campus emerged, and reminiscent of the original Latin word 'campus' (meadow). The hills and forests and gardens and plains of very ancient centres of learning, for example Plato's academy in Ancient Greece, or the early type of universities that existed in the mountainous areas of the Far East, were also sources of inspiration for the THIERRY campus in Belgium.
