stucoco is a platform for students to discover and share the cultural contents that matter to them.
Within stucoco, students from Ile-de-France are invited to share a collection of seven contents of different types (music, artworks, movies, book, events or live shows, places or architecture and food) that they relate to their life as students in their region.
stucoco is a participatory initiative that aims at celebrating the diversity of both cultural contents and individual experiences in Ile-de-France. The name itself is a pun that mixes the definition of it, “students contents collections“, and the french youths’ expression “tu coco“, short word for “tu connais”, which can be interpreted as “you know what I mean” and embodies the horizontal, community relationship stucoco wants to enhance.
The Region acts in most areas that concern the action of the 12 million inhabitants of Paris: transport, high schools, apprenticeship, economic development, the environment … In an area that covers 2% of the French territory but brings together 18 % of its population and almost 30% of the national GDP, the Region develops a territory both urban and rural.
