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.
