We have successfully partnered with Non Profits, Governments, Prince Albert II Foundation for the Monaco Ocean week and the SDG Goals of the United Nations
The Principality of Monaco’s commitment to marine ecosystem conservation is deeply rooted in its history with the inauguration of the Institute of Oceanography by Prince Albert I of Monaco in 1911, and more recently, with the creation of Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation in 2006.
The aim to raise awareness of environmental dangers to our planet, and especially our oceans, is once again a priority on the third edition of the Monaco Ocean Week agenda.
This unifying event is bringing together scientists, experts, NGOs and representatives of civil society to discuss the key issue of ocean protection. On the agenda are topics addressing innovation, research and developing a blue economy.
Possibilities offered by Innovation, pooling initiatives to curb and tackle plastic pollution more effectively or developing a sustainable ocean economy are among the themes that will be tackled during the various workshops and talks being held throughout the week.
