Moncontour is a small village in Brittany. As the village suffers from ageing population and the lack of economic development, the municipality decided to offer new opportunities to the village through digitalization. In order to meet the needs and attract new inhabitants, the municipality supported the creation of the third-place "Chez Yvonne", in partnership with local stakeholders. Created in 2020, this third-place offers digital services, places to meet or to organize events. It is meant to enhance social life and to create a communal place to meet.
