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.
