The architecturally exciting new home of the International University of Monaco has been officially inaugurated by H.S.H. Prince Albert II and National Council President Stéphane Valeri. After the traditional cutting of a red ribbon and the unveiling of an inaugural plaque, participants visited the 2,000 m² site, which encompasses ultra-modern and intelligently connected classrooms, meeting rooms and study spaces. Director General of the University Jean-Philippe Muller thanked Prince Albert for his support since the IUM was established in 1986. The University also acknowledged that assistance of the Department of the Interior when the idea of the IUM leaving its premises at the Stade Louis II arose almost two years ago. According to a statement from the IUM, the size of the new Stella campus will allow the university to reach its growth objective, which is 800 students within a few years, up from the current 650 students today. Jean-Philippe Muller said he is also very optimistic about the future of the IUM in the district of Condamine, saying he hoped "that the next 33 years at Stella will be as fruitful as the 33 past years at Stade Louis II." The next goal for IUM is to obtain, from 2020, the prestigious AACSB accreditation that would allow it to join the ranks of the 796 best international business schools. Top photo: accompanying H.S.H. Prince Albert II from left to right are Stéphane Valéri, president of the Conseil National, Dr Jean-Philippe Muller, General Director of IUM, and Patrice Cellario, Conseiller de Gouvernement pour l’Intérieur.

The Monaco Economic Board (MEB) spent four days in the dynamic South Korean capital celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Franco-Korean Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FKCCI), as well as taking advantage of the visit to expand business opportunities between the two nations. Ranked 4th of the world’s largest metropolitan economies, Seoul is a true Alpha World City. With a GDP of US$635.4 billion, only Tokyo, New York and Los Angeles can top it. Monaco is poised to tap into this city’s vast economic opportunities and in anticipation of this, sent a large delegation to explore possible bilateral trade and commercial prospects. Representatives from the Monaco Economic Board were joined by members of the Sovereign Prince’s government, Visit Monaco and leaders from dozens of Monegasque-based companies, ranging from cosmetics and construction to insurance. The FKCCI, organisers of the unprecedented gathering, created a packed four day agenda including meetings with local politicians and business leaders, whose goals are to expand and establish new business and trade prospects. The visit also incorporated networking events and visits to cultural sites, allowing the Monegasques to get a feel for the city and its vibrant, energetic economy. A highlight of the trip was the Monaco-Korea Economic Forum, a meeting of 70 high level attendees whose speakers included Frédéric Genta, Monaco’s Chief Digital Officer, Guillaume Rose, the CEO of MEB, David-Pierre Jalicon, FKCCI’s President, Michel Drobniak, Economic Advisor to the French Embassy in Seoul and Kim Eun-Seok, Advisor to the Federation of Korean Industries (FKI).... #monacolife_ #monacotrendy #monacolife #monacocelebrity #monacofood #monacosports #monacoluxury #monaconews https://monacolife.net/meb-in-seoul-to-promote-business-possibilities/ ...

Siya Kolisi crowned Peace & Sport Champion of the Year On an evening at One Monte Carlo, in a room filled with people who exhibit both exceptional talent and a deep care for humanity, there could be only to walk away with the top prize. In the end, it was Captain of the South African 2019 World Championship Rugby Team, Siya Kolisi, who was awarded this year’s Peace and Sport Champion of the Year. Siya Kolisi has had quite a year. Not only did he lead his Springbok’s to victory, making him a household name in the rugby world, he was also ambassador to a programme which donated photovoltaic lamps to over 100,000 South African families who live without power, he helped expand his hometown school, he bestowed sport’s equipment to his childhood rugby club and he created a national campaign to provide 262 schools with digital tablets – the exact number of points his team scored last season. The 28-year-old is no stranger to want. Growing up in Zwide township, he recalls often being hungry and deprived, not an uncommon occurrence in these enclaves where unemployment is high and opportunities are few. But he overcame his disadvantages through determination, and now he is actively involved in showing other kids from his hometown that they can, too. His hard work has paid off, culminating in being honoured with this prestigious award. "The Peace and Sport Awards are a unique opportunity to focus the world on sport's initiatives for peace,”said Joël Bouzou, President and Founder of Peace and Sport. “From grassroots NGOs to governments in the world of sport. We all have a role to play and we must use this wonderful tool of sport for peace. I would also like to congratulate Siya Kolisi, Champion of the Year, who, like Nelson Mandela, has shown a unique power of sport to bring people together.”..... #monacolife_ #monacotrendy #monacolife #monacocelebrity #monacofood #monacos https://monacolife.net/siya-kolisi-crowned-peace-sport-champion-of-the-year/ ...

The National Energy Transition Pact is heading into its second year, and the government is asking signatory companies to begin ramping up their commitments with concrete plans for the future. Last Thursday, the Mission for Energy Transition Monaco presented their latest aspirations to representatives from companies who have previously signed onto the pact, including the Grimaldi Forum, SBM Offshore, My Marketing Manager, various hotels of the Principality and offices of the State Services and Concessions. The meeting started by covering the previous pledges made by the companies of a formal commitment followed by implementation of solid actions, an official survey of the need for exchanges, tools or training, and a measure of progress under the three central themes of mobility, waste management and energy savings. They went on to discuss with the representatives what their next steps for the programme will be and included such ambitious ideas as adding more water points in the Principality, encouraging and expanding the use of MonaBike as an alternative mode of daily transportation for employees, building more electric vehicle charging stations and urging people to carpool rather than drive alone. The companies and institutions will have until March 2020 to submit their choice of voluntary actions to the Mission. The National Pact comprises a simple and comprehensible Commitment Charter, which covers all stakeholders and sets out the three major areas for action as part of the energy transition: transport, waste and energy. It is translated into annual action plans indicating what, specifically, each person or organisation who has signed up will do to contribute to the energy transition effort, highlighting the greenhouse gas emissions thus prevented. #monacolife_ #monacotrendy #monacolife #monacocelebrity #monacofood #monacosports #monacoluxury #monaconews https://monacolife.net/national-energy-transition-pact-2-0/ ...

A study presented by the Group of Friends of Oceans and Seas has exposed a worrying lack of protection for important marine areas worldwide. The study, conducted by Dr Ellen Pikitch, Professor at Stony Brook University in New York and Chief Scientific Officer of the Ocean Sanctuary Alliance, is entitled Gaps in the Protection of Important Ocean Areas and was presented last week at the Permanent Mission of Monaco to the United Nations in New York City. The presentation revealed that a large number of maritime zones that are identified as being in need of protection are not designated Marine Protection Areas. The vast majority of these zones fall in under the jurisdiction of Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ). EEZ’s are sites where nations have special rights regarding use of marine resources as well as exploration. These zones stretch from the coast to 200 nautical miles into the open ocean. They are different from territorial seas, which convey sovereign rights over the waters to a particular state, in that these areas cover only what goes on below the surface. The surface is still considered international waters and therefore no country cannot prohibit ocean going vessels from using these sites for travel purposes. The findings of the study has been compiled on the World Database on Protected Areas, managed by the UN Environment Programme and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. Marine Protected Areas comprise just 4.8% of the world’s oceans. What’s more, less than half that, or 2.2%, of the oceans fall under the highly protected category of no-take marine reserves. #monacolife_ #monacotrendy #monacolife #monacocelebrity #monacofood #monacosports #monacoluxury #monaconews https://monacolife.net/new-study-shows-major-gaps-in-ocean-protection/ ...
