Last mile to Monaco
What a privilege and a pleasure to be invited this year again by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation to the Monaco Ocean Week, from March 20th to 24th!
For the second year in a row, the Transnational Red Sea Center will host some 80 guests for an event at the Monaco Yacht Club co-organized by the Ecole polytechnique fédérale in Lausanne (EPFL) and the Swiss Ministry of foreign Affairs. The event will be held in the presence of HE Ambassador Alexandre Fasel, Special Representative of the Swiss Confederation for Science Diplomacy.
In 2022 and early 2023, the Transnational Red Sea Center conducted three scientific missions in the northern Gulf of Aqaba, Djibouti and Sudan in close collaboration with its regional partners.
On the exclusive occasion of the Monaco Ocean Week 2023, this unique initiative bridging science and diplomacy in favor of Red Sea corals, hosted at EPFL, will present the initial results of these first milestones of its long-term vision and action plan to preserve the most promising - if not the last - coral « refuge » on Earth against global warming. A good occasion as well to highlight how Swiss-lead science diplomacy is playing a critical role in this regard.
