Gilles Tonelli, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, and Frédéric Mion, Director of Paris Institute of Political Studies, have signed a new partnership agreement aimed at raising students’ awareness of development issues. The signature took place on the same day as students of the Menton Science Po Paris Campus resumed their studies, on Friday, September 8.
Over the past three years, over 900 young people have benefited from specific lessons, participated in project-building competitions and met with recognised experts in humanitarian and development, thanks to the cooperation of the International Cooperation Department and the Menton Mediterranean Middle East Campus.
In view of the partnership’s undoubted success, the Government of Monaco decided to continue its commitment and to sign a new agreement, with a grant of €200,000.
This contribution will make it possible to organise, during the next three academic years, new initiatives to raise awareness of development, training in project management and to award a scholarship to two deserving students.
The Prince’s Government and Science Po are delighted with this new partnership aimed at developing the civic responsibility of the students who are certain to be tomorrow’s future decision-makers in their country of origin.
