Launch of the 2017 edition of « Students on Ice »
Every year, the “Students on Ice” programme, created 15 years ago in Canada, gives young students the opportunity to come into contact with the realities of the Arctic region and its evolution, thanks to an educational cruise.
For the past 10 years, as part of a partnership between the Ministry of National Education, Youth and Sports and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, two Year 12 students from the Principality have been selected every winter to take part in “Students on Ice”.
The selection process for the participants of the 2017 edition was launched on 11th January at the Lycée Technique et Hôtelier of Monaco, in the presence of HSH the Sovereign Prince. Aimed at selecting two new winners, this year’s competition is based on the theme “the relationship between humans and wildlife”.Read more

Thierry Bisch explains: “I have been painting animals for decades and some of my models are on the verge of extinction, right there in front of me. So I decided to show them to you and put the question to you: Delete? The answer is in your hands.”Read more
