CAMPUS (The Thierry eco-campus and Collegiate Meeting Center)

Creating a space: when Nature defines the rules...

The THIERRY eco-campus is distinguishable from others by a series of particularities. The school's aims extend far beyond the waste management, recycling, or environmental protection measures and policies implemented at many university campuses or other organisations around the world. With our eco-campus the emphasis is placed on the premise that mankind's place is subordinate to the natural environment, not the natural environment to fit mankind, nor the preservation of the natural environment for its own sake only. Rather than being a man-designed form of greenery architecture, the campus grounds are part of the surrounding environment : the 850 hectares (2,100 acres) of adjacent and mostly uninhabited woods. The campus was thus "given" its biotope space, while undergoing the many influences of the natural ecosystem at large, and of the local climate. Human intervention is mostly one of tending to the ecological balance of "things". For example, the lawns are not from cultivated grass seeds, but are the original pasture grasses, weeds, and mosses, being mowed so to remain nature-authentic greens. And nearly all of the trees are local indigenous species, not exotic ones.

About The House: its multi-purpose versatility...

Workshops, labs, and course sessions are held on the greens or in the eco-campus' House. The mansion's oak-framed walls and foundations from rock stones, are of the early 18th century. Some of the building materials that had been used then, date back to the second half of the 16th century. They were probably retrieved from the ruins of a nearby but nowadays disappeared medieval iron blast furnace (iron ore and melting dross is still found on the eco-campus grounds). Originally a charcoal- burners' dwelling, the house afterwards became a small cattle farm. In the course of the 20th century it was transformed into a residential lodge, and was enlarged twice. The interior of the house is decorated with century-old furniture made locally. The overall layout lends itself to multiple uses and purposes, for instance the rooms and spaces for small group courses or for individual face to face teaching and coaching sessions, or the reading of a book from the school's leadership library. The words serenity and charm would best describe the overall atmosphere of the eco-campus House.

On environment and leadership, for the future...

Apart from the numerous leisure and sports opportunities at and nearby the Thierry Graduate School of Leadership's eco-campus, the students, program participants, alumni, executives, and teachers from around the world, are all treated as true guests and share their passion for leadership, as well as their hopes and worries about the -in all regards- rapidly changing global and local environments.

Student Life

The total number of students per year is limited to 50 per year (currently capped at 40 persons). A number of stduents attend the distance learning version of the programs.
