The Electric Vehicles Club of Monaco invited 4th grade pupils and high school students from the Secondary Industrial Technical School to try out electric vehicles at the Parking des Pécheurs on Thursday, February 2.

In close collaboration with the Directorate of National Education, Youth and Sports, and the Directorate of Environment, the 18th edition of the Jeun’Elec event involved a presentation of all types of electric transport, from scooters to bicycles, and from cars to karts.

A road safety workshop, led by the Directorate of Public Safety, was offered to young people interested in driving a “two-wheeled vehicle”.

Beyond the hands-on testing of electric vehicles, the objective of the day was to sensitise pupils to the problem of the environment and pollution related to urban road transport, as well as the notion of intermodality.

Students were invited to participate in the Jeun’Elec Competition by making a video clip on the theme of electric mobility.
