Inaugural Ocean Week starts next week in Monaco

By Staff Writer - March 22, 2017

The Blue Economy will take centre stage during an international conference in Monaco, to run from March 30 until April 4.

The first “Monaco Ocean Week” will be an interdisciplinary event bringing together major international organisations with local partners, in order to contribute to the conservation of the marine world.

“It is the pledge of the Prince to defend the cause of the oceans with all the forces involved,” Vice-President and CEO of the Foundation Prince Albert II, Bernard Fautrier, said at the Yacht Club on Tuesday, March 21.

Monaco’s princes have always worked for the marine world, Mr Fautrier added. He cited Prince Albert I, a “visionary” who was the first of Monaco’s sovereigns to understand the importance of the sea and call for its protection.

Mr Fautrier said that concerted action to save our oceans is urgent and now is a key moment to take the initiative. Monaco will once again set the agenda by organising this seminal conference on one of the greatest issues of our time, protecting our oceans in order to protect our planet.

The Week will take place at several venues, including the Monaco Yacht Club, the Oceanographic Museum, the Residence of the Minister of State, and the headquarters of the International Hydrographic Organisation.
