Alexia Noyon has been leading the Association La Chartreuse de Neuville for 12 years. She first joined the project as she was excited to tackle the challenge of creating a third place in a rural areal. As she is passionate about education challenges and about the balance between humans and economy she dedicated the first part of her career to humanitarian and educative projects in various organisations such as the European Commission, NGO’s and schools.
Thanks to a strong entrepreneurial mindset and an initial training in business, she launched in 2001 a handcraft brewery with her partner. After five years she decided to step into a new adventure. Together with a local entrepreneur, she launched the project of the Chartreuse de Neuville where she plays a strategic and operational role.
