Summer is great time in Monaco with lots of things to do for kids and adults. And here we selected the most interesting news about events of the past week.
The World Cup is as exciting to watch in Monaco as in Moscow. The matches may be live in Moscow, but they are super-alive in Monaco. Where would you rather be to celebrate them. Live the same party atmosphere here in Monaco. Cheer your team on, partying with friends. Drink, shout, wave, jump up and down, dine, pop champagne corks. Here is HelloMonaco’s list of great venues to watch those balls fly into the back of the net and roar with excitement.
Many sporting activities created a friendly atmosphere at the Town Hall’s Court of Honour on June 20, during the traditional Sports Festival.
Jacques Pastor, Deputy Mayor of the Department of Sports and Leisure, surrounded by members of the Françoise Gamerdinger Council, Henri Doria and Claude Bollati, warmly congratulated the presidents, leaders, coaches and sportspeople of the Principality’s sporting associations and federations, who were present for the occasion.
It was a series like no other. Brave young hearts, dominant in the League, AS Monaco basketball team (Roca Team) gave us all extraordinary moments to always remember.
In the first game of this Championship final we got exactly what we wanted to see, intensity and thrills and the Red and Whites sealing a win away from home. Gerald Robinson and Chris Evans playing for Monaco were superb, were they not. These Roca Team stalwarts ensured Monaco kept control of the game. Not an easy win by any means; just 4 seconds from the end at 79-77 the Manceaux could have turned the tables with a three pointer shot from a distance. Two free throws later from the brilliant Gerald Robinson and it was to the dressing room for the Manceau with their tails between their legs.
As part of celebrations to mark the 25th anniversary of the Principality’s accession to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation organised a high-level colloquium in Monaco on Monday 25 June 2018.
Recently, Mayor Georges Marsan and many members of the Communal Council welcomed His Excellency the Minister of State Serge Telle, Monsignor Bernard Barsi, Archbishop of Monaco, Stéphane Valeri, President of the National Council and the architects in charge of the project to inaugurate the recently renovated Town Hall.
Seven months of work went as planned to restore the place to its former glory. A major project conceived by architects Orietta Polonio and Pierre Antonini from Atelier 7, and realized successively and jointly (according to the phases) by four Monegasque companies.
“Think like a wise man but communicate in the language of the people”. This simple aphorism by the Irish writer and poet William Butler Yeats points out the increasing need to communicate in a more objective, simple, synthetic, clear and flexible way. Something even more crucial when we are debating on multidisciplinary environmental issues.
The Aedes albopictus mosquito, commonly known as the tiger mosquito, arrived in Menton in 2004 and has since colonised the Alpes-Maritimes region and the Principality of Monaco. The mosquito is capable of transmitting viral infections such as Chikungunya, Dengue and Zika.
Cliiink – can you hear it? That is the sound of your glass bottle going into the recycling bin in Monaco. Do you know that you just made an important step in saving the Planet? You will have just made a very powerful and serious step to preserve the environment for the children of the future, because that bottle typically would take literally thousands of years to decompose naturally. That would be very bad news indeed if it were not for the good news that glass is 100% recyclable. So, our role in this process, as residents or citizens of the Principality, is to put our used glass containers in the recycling bins. That’s it – job done, just put those glass containers in the right bin and listen for the Cliiink. Save nature and the glass will be made perfectly usable again.
