Signature of the Tripartite Agreement on eco-responsible commitment and Education for Sustainable Development

Ms. Isabelle BONNAL, Director of National Education, Youth and Sports (DENJS), Mr. Olivier WENDEN, Vice-President of the Prince Albert II Foundation and Ms. Jessica SBARAGLIA, Founder of the Terre de Monaco company, formalized today their partnership through the signing of an Agreement based on eco-responsible commitment and Education for Sustainable Development among students in the Principality.

Implemented last March, this agreement, which could not be formalized due to the health crisis, provides for the organization of numerous educational activities related to the environment and the development of organic vegetable gardens in certain establishments in the Principality, such as the Prince Albert II Leisure Center, the Parc school, the Fontvieille school, the Monaco Technical and Hotel Lycée and the Condamine school where this official signing took place.

The objective of this convention is to allow students, from an early age, to interact with nature, to discover the production process of fruits and vegetables but also to be sensitive, by knowing the products consumed, to a healthy and balanced diet. Thus, nearly 3,000 students per year garden and harvest their produce.

On the occasion of this ceremony, the Prince Albert II Foundation presented CM1 B students from the Condamine school with a set of cards recalling the main Sustainable Development Goals, set by the United Nations in 2015. This fun educational tool will be distributed to all schoolchildren in the coming days.

This tripartite agreement confirms that the Prince Albert II Foundation and the Terre de Monaco company are today the privileged partners of the DENJS in the development of a real Education for Sustainable Development, among the students of the Principality.
