Four days of Monacology unites kids and the environment

Monacology organizers

More than three dozen volunteers joined Monacology founders Didier Rubiolo and Kate Powers of Stars’n’Bars and Olivier Arnoult of MC Advisory at a press conference at the Grimaldi Forum on Tuesday to outline their programme for four days of environmental “consciousness raising”.

This year is the Association’s 13th anniversary and participants have chosen to focus on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals … a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

From June 6 to 9, Monaco schoolchildren will visit dozens of workshops, exhibits, film projections and interactive games addressing many of the 17 global goals, including climate change, water supply, clean energy, ocean protection and responsible consumption.

According to Kate, Monacology’s EcoVillage, which will be set up at Quai Antoine 1er, is “100 percent green” and the activities are manned by volunteers from government, non-profit associations and the private sector.

“It’s the Monaco community at its best”, she said. This year’s exhibits will also include a solar-powered boat built by local students and a solar-powered ambulance.
