Our mission

TheMerode is a place to discover, contribute, be entertained, be uplifted. 
A place to grow.

We believe that personal growth is the cornerstone of positive change, inspiring individuals to reach their full potential. 

Fostering a community committed to restless curiosity and self-improvement, we aim to ignite a ripple effect that resonates globally, empowering our community to contribute collectively to a brighter, more harmonious future. 

Our House

Blending history with modernity

Our home is a fully renovated historical building, located in the heart Brussels and Europe. Dating back from the 16th century, the renovation subtly blends a classic style with modern twist, offering a comfortable nest to enjoy all the club has to offer : lounges, meeting and event rooms, library, dining facilities, workspace and an outdoor terrace.

Our agenda

Our eclectic programme of talks and experiences is crafted to feed your brain, soul and body and encourage you to reconnect with the community.
As a member, you can enjoy over 150 in-person events a year.

Dive into economy, politics, arts, education, leadership, wellbeing, new technologies , lifestyle and many more fascinating topics.
