Art, science and culture to unite at Monaco’s Green Shift Festival

The Green Shift Festival is an event designed to inspire positivity, community and collective engagement. It will be returning to the Promenade de Larvotto in early June for its second edition. 

Unlike with many environmental and eco-aware initiatives, so often burdened with worrying messages and talk of concern and of risks, the Green Shift Festival is all about highlighting the good work being done around the world to make positive changes.  

Over three nights between 5th and 7th June on the Place Anne-Marie Campora, the event’s organisers will present a varied and engaging programme that aims to inspire and promote balance between humanity and the natural environment.

The schedule will pair workshops and conferences, both cultural and ecological, with an array of artistic and musical performances. The Kate Powers Foundation is joining the list of Green Shift Festival supporters in 2024, and representatives will run a number of morning yoga, meditation and dance sessions alongside the main event.  

Later in the day, Happy Hours from 6pm each evening will give participants the chance to network and learn more about the local efforts being made in Monaco, by the state and by residents, while enjoying dishes from Sexy Tacos.

The Green Shift Festival is a Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation-backed event, and has received support from Monaco’s Department of Cultural Affairs, Rencontres Philosophiques de Monaco, the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco, the Mairie de Monaco, Shibuya International, the Carmignac Foundation, Actes Sud, Imagine 2050, Time for the Ocean, the Monegasque Academy of the Sea, WE DEMAIN and SOGEDA.  

“In fostering the emergence of new ecological narratives, we can transform the way we perceive our world and interact with it,” says Olivier Wenden, Vice-President and CEO of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation. “This is precisely the objective of the various actions implemented by the Foundation since its creation, through support for field projects or during major international meetings: to contribute to the promotion of a more harmonious balance, more fair and more responsible between man and his environment.”
