The conference for the second edition of Monaco Ocean Week, which will take place from April 8 to 14, was held on Tuesday.

The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and its partners – the Monaco Government, the Monaco Scientific Centre, the Oceanographic Institute and the Monaco Yacht Club – reaffirmed their commitment to take action on threats to the environment, especially concerning the oceans.

The objective of the week of events will be to find solutions to protect the marine environment, particularly in the face of climate change. The programme will have for its watchwords “alertness, awareness and education” as the Principality brings together local and international experts, the scientific community, economic actors, voluntary associations and public authorities around one single goal: to engage for the protection of the ocean.
