INTERDEV PIM (2024): Use Your Interpersonal Skills to Address Sustainable Development Issues

In June 2024, as part of the “INTERDEV” joint interdisciplinary project (PIM), a group of Master’s students from UBO, UBS, ENSTA Bretagne and IMT-Atlantique imagined and developed projects to find solutions to sustainable development issues faced by local stakeholders.

3 projects were developed this year:

  • A comparative study of two Marine Protected Areas
  • A project to develop a mediation system for the ImmerseaRADE project (virtual reality system) for its presentation at the Brest Maritime Festival
  • A project to monitor European otter populations in Finistère

In the months leading up to the final week in Ushant, workshops were held throughout the semester to help student groups develop and refine their projects. The participants then spent the whole week immersed in the island of Ushant and took part in various divergence workshops (coming up with ideas) and convergence workshops (making choices and organising ideas) using the Design Thinking method, to explore the issues and develop and prototype relevant and innovative solutions.
