The “Jeun’Elec” program of the Electric Vehicles Club of Monaco held a session on Friday with volunteer students from Charles III and François d’Assise Nicolas Barré.

The event on February 8 took place at the Parking des Pêcheurs with a presentation of all modes of electric transport – scooters, electric bikes, cars and karts. A road safety workshop, led by the Department of Public Safety, was offered to the 4th graders likely to drive a two-wheeler.

Beyond the simple test of electric vehicles, the objective of the day was to make students aware of the need to respect the environment by limiting pollution related to urban transport and to promote the notion of inter-modality.

In preparation for the day, all students in the 4th grade benefited from a pedagogical session around these themes.

At the end of this awareness-raising process, the students were invited to participate in a competition on the theme of electric mobility. The awards ceremony for this contest will take place during the EVER Forum, on Wednesday, April 11, in the presence of Prince Albert.
