Children from the age of 5 and up are invited to participate in a series of eco-creative workshops and storytelling at Stars’n’Bars today, from 1 pm to 6 pm.
The afternoon includes a range of speakers to capture the imagination of youngsters from Monaco and the region, from Marina Di Mattei, who will demonstrate how to create treasures from recycled materials to Mihaela Stoica, a genius at creating accessories using recycled textiles to make wallets, a cupcake keyholder for girls and for boys, a car.
Guided by Cathy Cuby, children can also design plant-based Mosaics, which they can take home afterward, and Marie-Christine Constantine will teach the art of making masks.
With their joint Eco Brico event, Monacology and Terre méditerranées aim to promote creativity and art as a means of expression and communication while making a gesture for the planet.
Later this evening, the New England Patriots take on the Atlanta Falcons for Superbowl 51. The match out of NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, will be aired on Stars’n’Bars’ big screen from 11 pm. Reservations advised.
St. Paul’s Anglican Church has started making online videos of their weekly sermons in English, so parishioners don’t have to miss out during the lockdown.
The National Council says it wants to keep the Condamine and Monte-Carlo markets open, despite the closure of all food markets this week across France.
The government has added psychologists to the team at Monaco’s Covid-19 call centre as a growing number of people seek advice on how to cope with isolation and fear.
The National Council is calling on the Prince’s government to create a makeshift hospital in preparation for a surge in coronavirus cases in the Principality.
Prince Albert visited Ohio State University to learn more about the university’s research and educational programming on sustainability issues and to give a lecture on climate change, biodiversity and access to clean water.
Electric vehicle manufacturer Venturi Automobiles, located in Monaco, is the sponsor of the Buckeye Bullet Electric Race Car – “a series of student-built, alternative-fuel race cars which run Utah’s Bonneville Speedway” – and is largely responsible for cultivating Prince Albert’s interest in visiting Ohio State. The Prince is especially interested in sustainability efforts at Ohio Stadium because of Monaco’s plans to build a new sports stadium, which he hopes will be a global model of sustainability.
Prince Albert established the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation in 2006 with the aim of helping protect the environment.
The Foundation encourages sustainable management of natural resources and supports innovative and ethical solutions in the areas of climate change, water and biodiversity.
From on his own research forays and his travels to remote regions of the globe, the Prince is convinced that climate change is the most pressing crisis facing the planet today. (Sources: Washington Times, Ohio State University)
