World Environment Day: head to Larvotto Beach 5th June

In celebration of World Environment Day, the Principality of Monaco is hosting a series of fun activities dedicated to the environment.

World Environment Day is observed annually on 5th June and is a United Nations initiative aimed at promoting environmental awareness and action.

The Société Monégasque d’Assainissement (SMA), the Department of the Environment, the Beyond Plastic Med (BeMed) the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation (FPA2), the Monegasque Association for Nature Protection (AMPN), and the Pelagos and Ramoge Secretariats are joining forces to present an exciting programme for the whole family at Larvotto Esplanade.

Wednesday 5th June schedule

The day will kick off at 9am with a waste collection operation. Two teams will work simultaneously: one at sea and the other on land.

Following the waste collection, a waste characterisation session will take place from 10:45am to 11:30am, to help people better understand the nature of the collected waste.

Starting at 2pm, various activities and workshops will be held at the Larvotto Esplanade, including booths from various partners, an escape game workshop, a waste fresco workshop, and a goose game workshop for children. The workshops will conclude at 5pm.

The Pelagos and Ramoge secretariats will also organise the signing of the RAMOGE Charter of Commitments for the Posidonia Alliance, an initiative that allows any marine stakeholder to commit to the preservation of Posidonia.
