Prince Albert hosted the members of the Scientific and Technical Committee of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation on March 2, which assembled for its 24th meeting in the Principality.
The meeting was mainly devoted to the examination of 24 new projects concerning climate change, biodiversity and water, which may be supported by the Foundation. After the Scientific and Technical Committee makes its recommendations, these will go for approval by the Board of Directors on June 22.
Among the projects presented were a plastic source study conducted by IUCN and BeMed, a WWF program to combat deforestation in Colombia, and CIESM monitoring of large predator (shark and ray) migrations in the Mediterranean and in the Black Sea.
Since its creation in 2006, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation has supported 424 projects to a total value of €39 million.
The Communal Council, under the leadership of Chloé Boscagli-Leclercq, Advisor Delegate for Early Childhood, has published a booklet in a handy format about all family-friendly activities organised by the Monaco Town Council.
In addition to practical information, the Family Guide provides a guide to outings, special activities, dates of family-oriented events and much more. This small 36-page booklet is a mine of information. For each place or event, all the essential details are available to help families make the right choices.
Pick up a copy of the "Guide des Familles - Per i Fiyœiat" reception of the Town Hall or the Tourism and Convention Bureau. Alternatively choose the pdf version to download from the website.

A delegation from Huawei, Monaco Telecom's partner, led by Vincent Pang, CEO Europe, visited the Principality on Monday, March 12, to work on future collaborations, particularly in the context of Smart City development.
The Monegasque operator and the provider of digital solutions in terminals, networks and cloud, for operators, businesses and consumers, have been working together since 2013.
Thanks to this long-standing partnership, Monaco Telecom has developed the 4G mobile network enabling the opening in Monaco, in April 2017, of the world's first mobile network offering up to 1 Gb/s.
Developments to improve coverage in the Principality made it possible in January of this year to place Monaco Telecom at the top of the rankings of 290 global operators according to 4GMARK – an ultra-precise measurement tool that offers a complete benchmark of quality of service connection on smartphones.
