The European Waste Reduction Week (SERD) starts on Saturday, around the theme of “Sustainable communities”. This initiative invites the voluntary countries, of which the Principality of Monaco is a part, to promote the realization of awareness actions on the sustainable management of resources and waste. On this occasion, the Oceanographic Museum will offer three highlights around the “3Rs”: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
An interesting event to watch this weekend is Monaco Optimist & Laser Academy (Laser & Optimist), organised by the Yacht Club de Monaco from Friday 19 to Sunday 21 November 2021, in Bay of Monaco.
In preparation for the Monaco Optimist Team Race, and keen for our young sailors to forge links with those from foreign clubs, the Yacht Club de Monaco launched the Mediterranean Monaco Optimist & Laser Academy in 2017. Combining a regatta and training, the concept allows coaches to go alongside during races to give advice and tips. An original format, it has attracted clubs from all over the world, with nearly a hundred young racers aged under 14.
AS Monaco needs your support in the French Premier League Football Championship game against Lille on Sunday 21 November 2021, on Louis II Stadium.
And of course there are various exhibitions now. The Direction des Affaires Culturelles is organising an exhibition entitled “Conquêtes Pacifiques, les extensions en mer à Monaco”, from 15 October 2021 to 2 January 2022, at the Salle d’exposition du Quai Antoine Ier.
The new exhibition was inspired by the donation of a private collection of photographs depicting land reclamation projects.
The exhibition invites visitors to explore these geopolitical, social, urban, technical, and ecological adventures – in short, the human stories upon which Monegasque culture is built. To that end, it brings together a large collection of cartographical, photographic, and audiovisual archives, along with various plans and models. In addition, the exhibition’s organisers interviewed a number of the people behind these land reclamation projects, and those who use these new living spaces today, to get their personal impressions.
Of course there are other interesting events taking place in Monaco. If you want to learn more about them visit our Calendar.
So have fun and enjoy your weekend!
