MSc in International Management and Bachelor in Communication students work on how to develop a community of international young people committed to Ocean Protection.

Ocean protection - IUM partner with the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco

How can we incite the public to adopt the proper behavior to protect our marine heritage? How can we engage generation Z to develop their ocean knowledge and understanding? How can we encourage daily actions? Those are some of the topics for the group projects of about 50 master and bachelor students.

Yesterday afternoon, the four finalist groups of MSc in International Management and Bachelor in Communication students presented their digital strategies to the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco.

At the end of their impressive presentations, the jury members consisting of Mrs. Elling, President of the Friends of the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco and Messrs. Calcagno, CEO at the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco, Kutemann, President of the Monaco Impact Association, Muller, General Director at the International University of Monaco (IUM), and Genta,Country Chief Digital Officer for the Principality of Monaco, deliberated to choose the best and most feasible project.

They chose the team “Monaco Turtles” as the winner of the first ever challenge sponsored by the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco and the Monaco Impact Association.

As we go further into this process, we are more and more convinced that the best positioning is based on both tradition and modernity. I hope that thanks to your vision, your essential brief experience of life, the knowledge transmitted by your teachers and your bright new ideas, we will be able to design the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco of tomorrow, said Mr. Calcagno.

The winning project will be implemented in the next months by the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco, an opportunity for our students to continue working on this project.

Now it’s time to put into practice your strategy for protecting oceans, said Mr. Kutemann

This academic year, the IUM students have participated in a pedagogical project to elaborate creative solutions and new mediation tools on the digital and environmental front. This was part of a partnership between IUM, the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco and the Monaco Impact Association. This cooperation aims at raising young generations’ awareness of environmental issues, and more specifically about our ocean’s protection.
