In honour of the anniversary of Prince Albert II’s accession to the thrown, the UN is hosting an exhibition in New York showcasing Monaco’s commitment to the environment and the oceans.
The exhibition was inaugurated by Ambassador of Monaco to the United Nations Isabelle Picco on 11th July, 14 years after Prince Albert’s enthronement as ruler of the Principality.
Titled ‘Monaco and the Ocean’, the exhibition features more than 60 snapshots highlighting the leadership of Prince Albert and his government in the protection and promotion of the oceans as well as preventative measures that have been taken in the Principality.
Covering everything from marine protected areas to sustainable urbanization and scientific campaigns such as Monaco Explorations, the photo exhibition reveals to the audience the different ways Monaco is implementing the SDG14 – a global call to action.
As part of the inauguration, Prince Albert sent a video message supporting the UN’s campaign for the elimination of disposable plastics, which have been banned from United Nations Headquarters in New York since 6thJune.
More than 300 guests were present at the inauguration, including E. Maguy Maccario-Doyle, Ambassador of Monaco to the United States, and Gildo Pallanca Pastor, Consul General of Monaco in New York.
Monaco has a new bailiff, or huissier as known locally, who was sworn in earlier this week.
General crime rates in the Principality dropped by a significant 16% between the years 2016 and 2019, and street crime by an impressive 52%.
As part of the newly approved Palais Honoria housing project, a gantry will be installed above Boulevard de Belgique, creating temporary traffic impediments in the area.
Thomas Fouilleron, Director of Archives and Prince's Palace Library, and Colonel Tony Varo, Superior Commander of the Public Force, have been distinguished by the French High Authorities.
