Contexte (territory issues, targeted audience)

From 2018, the Moncontour Town Council undertakes a work of reflection on the reinforcement of its attractiveness. Starting from several territorial difficulties: limited economic dynamism, vacant building to renovate, aging of the population ... the municipality wishes to rely on a major asset, the presence of the optical fiber to operate to a strategic and economic repositioning of the territory.

It was in September 2018 that an opportunity study on the creation of a digital center for the silver economy was entrusted to the TAg22 - thruster of collective entrepreneurship carried by the pole of social and solidarity economy of the country of St -Brieuc (Rich'ESS association). The stakes are multiple: economic development, social link, aging well and development of skills and digital culture.

Target audience:
- business actors/entreprenors, workers
- local population
- communities
