On Friday 9 June, the three winners of the Monaco Ocean Protection Challenge competition were rewarded by H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco. The 6th Monaco Ocean Protection Challenge, originally initiated in 2017 by Monaco-Impact.org founded by Mr. Peter Kutemann is an international competition, co-organized by the International University of Monaco (IUM), the Oceanographic Institute (Albert I, Prince of Monaco Foundation), the Monaco Impact association and the Prince Albert II Foundation, brought together more of 100 students and young entrepreneurs from all over the world. The ceremony took place in the presence of Mr. Hervé Berville, Secretary of State to the Prime Minister, in charge of the Sea.
The objective is to support the younger generation in the realization of new concepts and economic models having a positive and measurable environmental impact on the Ocean.
