During the two-week campus, the young leaders benefited from :
- training modules and personalised coaching aimed at strengthening their leadership and communication skills, provided by the University of Edinburgh and INSEAD.
inspirational masterclasses given by renowned personalities such as Paul Polman (former CEO of Unilever), Abdalah Mokssit (Secretary of the IPCC), Alejandro Agag (founder of the Formula-E championship), Tim Flannery (Australian Palaeontologist of the Year in 2007), Julia Marton-Lefèvre (former Director General of the IUCN), Sunita Narain (Director General of the Centre for Science and Environment) and Philippe Schaus (CEO of Moët Hennessy),
environment-related visits showcasing the richness of the Côte d'Azur coastline,
and networking sessions.
At the end of the campus, the Foundation will offer these young talents access to its network in order to give them maximum visibility by providing them with a wide range of opportunities: speaking at international events, taking part in media programmes or interviews, dedicated articles on the Foundation's communication channels. This tailor-made communications and public relations support is one of the major differentiating features of the Re.Generation initiative.
The Re.Generation network will be animated throughout the year to encourage exchanges between its members and stimulate a group dynamic that could give rise to new projects to protect the environment.
Several major partners have already joined Re.Generation, convinced of the relevance and added value of the initiative. These include the National Geographic Society, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), Euronatur, One Young World, Jackson Wild, The Earth Foundation, Teri, the University of Edinburgh and the International University of Monaco.
Re.Generation is supported not only by the Moross family, but also by the Cuomo Foundation, the Boustany Foundation and Moët Hennessy, all of which are already working alongside the Foundation on research grant programmes.
