The International University of Monaco (IUM), the Monaco Impact association and the Oceanographic Museum strengthened their collaboration by signing a partnership agreement on Monday, October 9.

“This partnership fits perfectly with the mission of the International University of Monaco,” said Jean-Philippe Muller, Director of IUM, “which is to train managers and responsible entrepreneurs committed to innovation and sustainable development, while contributing to the international reputation of Monaco.”

The aim of this union is to sensitise the younger generation to environmental themes, and in particular to the protection of the oceans.

By the end of the school year, IUM students will take part in a 2.0 educational project, aimed at proposing innovative solutions and new digital and environmental mediation tools.

Some fifty students from the Masters and Bachelor classes, divided into several working groups, will try to address the questions: How to encourage the public to adopt a code of conduct to protect our marine heritage?; How to engage generations Z to develop their knowledge about the oceans?; and How to encourage action on a daily basis?

Several working sessions and meetings will be held between the 20 pilot students participating in the project, and the management teams of the Oceanographic Museum, in particular to define the issues on which the students will be challenged.
