In his address to an audience from over 100 countries, Prince Albert spoke on major challenges that currently face our ability to conserve the ocean. The Sovereign mentioned the need for efficient management of marine protected areas, and spoke on opportunities linked to the ocean in terms of energy transition.

Prince Albert also reminded us that our daily lives are more connected to the ocean than we may realise: “To speak of the Ocean is to speak of our human life here and now.”
