A new non-profit Association, Monaco Challenge, will be holding its launch event to coincide with the British Royal Wedding on May 19.

The initial event is the Monaco Tree Challenge, which is to plant a tree, over time, for every citizen and resident of Monaco – a total of 37,500 people. There will be other challenges to come.

The venue is the Star Deck above Stars’n’Bars, where from noon guests can watch the wedding on the big screen. “There will be drinks and food, and everyone will be given a ‘tree kit’ to plant a tree, and chocolate which benefits the project,” the organisers say. There will also be the opportunity to donate a sum which will count towards tree planting elsewhere.

The challenge supports Plant for the Planet’s campaign to plant a trillion trees globally. For each tree kit Forest Nation will plant another tree.

Plant for the Planet has been planting trees globally since its formation by 9-year-old Felix Finkbeiner in 2008, in locations from the Philippines to Namibia. The organisers of the Monaco Challenge thank Landmark Trust – an independent provider of trust and fiduciary services – for their support of the Monaco Tree Challenge.

To be “a part of hisTREEy” and the Monaco Tree Challenge at Stars’n’Bars (€30/person), RSVP before May 15 to
