When Nature inspires...


The THIERRY ecological or environmental campus, the eco-campus, came into being in 2010. It replaced the earlier project of an urban campus in Brussels, a most central city. It was in the summer of 2004 already that the idea of a countryside type of campus emerged, and also to align with the original Latin 'campus' which means field or 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 have existed in the mountainous areas of the Far East, were also sources of inspiration for creating the contemporary THIERRY campus, in Belgium. 


Situated in the north-eastern part of the Belgian Ardennes the THIERRY eco-campus is an ongoing venture. The gradual enhancements and energy improvements are part of the school's Year 2025 Vision implementation. Also known as the Outdoor Academy Ardennes and THIERRY House, the eco-campus' garden and bicentennial mansion have been put at the school's disposal by special courtesy of its owners.  next page:  natural space
