A new programme aimed at reducing pollution at sea has been launched as a combined effort of a French NGO, Clean Holidays, the RAMOGE trilateral commission, and the port authority in Monaco.
“I sail, I sort” was inaugurated on Tuesday, July 19, by the Port of Fontvielle in cooperation with the Department of Infrastructure and Environment. One of the campaign’s slogans is ‘Nothing overboard, all my waste to the port.’ Throughout the summer season leisure sailors can collect sacks for recyclable rubbish from the Port Captain and will have access, free of charge, to bags for non-recyclable items.
There has been marked improvement in the amount of waste recycled at ports in France since the measures were introduced, and during 2015 a total of 111,000 boat captains were involved. SOURCE: Monaco Government Press Office
Prince Albert has been tested at a Covid-19 screening centre in Monaco to raise awareness about the government’s campaign to have as many people of the Principality tested as possible.
Monaco’s primary students made their return to school on Monday, the final group to do so in the government’s three-phase plan to lift the lockdown.
The Principality ordered some 11.5 million masks at the height of the crisis. Now those masks are being safely stored by the government for a rainy day.
Come the next academic year, the ISM will be offering an exciting new diploma for students wishing to pursue career-related learning.
