To mark World Environment Day on June 5th, the Principality of Monaco is organising a series of awareness-raising initiatives aimed at protecting our land and oceans. The 2024 theme focus is land restoration, desertification and drought resilience.

The event is celebrated annually on this date, and is a United Nations initiative to promote awareness and action for the protection of our environment.

In Monaco, several local organisations are joining forces for the event: the Société Monégasque d’Assainissement (SMA), the Environment Department, the Beyond Plastic Med (BeMed) non-profit, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation (FPA2), the Association Monégasque pour la Protection de la Nature (AMPN), and the Pelagos and Ramoge Secretariats.

The organisers are delighted to be able to share this day with you on the Esplanade du Larvotto and have a superb programme planned from 9am to 5pm.

Program for Wednesday, June 5th

9:00 – 10:30am: Waste Collection

The day will kick off at 9:00am with a waste collection operation. Two teams will work in parallel: one at sea and the other on land.

10:45 – 11:30am: Waste Analysis

After the collection, a waste characterization session will take place at 10:45am. This analysis, scheduled for about 45 minutes, will allow a better understanding of the nature of the collected waste.
