Monaco has launched an innovative glass recycling scheme. The Cliiink scheme is the first reward programme for sorting glass packaging in Monaco. The 28 public green stations for glass collection are now equipped with a smart counting system, which is attached to the lid of the container. By putting their glass waste in the container users accumulate points, enabling them to benefit from offers from more than 50 traders so far in the Principality. The points can also be transformed into donations to charitable associations. Users can therefore help to preserve the planet and also help those in need.
For the first time, Monaco has participated in a meeting of states which are party to the convention on the rights of handicapped persons. The meeting was held in New York. The theme of the session, entitled "full implementation of the Convention to leave no one behind" has enabled the Principality to promote its inclusive social and economic policies so that disabled people can fully participate in the daily life of the community.
The Monaco government has announced the Monaco Sunday Experience for 2018. Merchants in the Principality are invited to participate in this annual event which promotes Monaco as a complete and varied destination on Sundays, combining shopping, well-being, gastronomy and culture. The Monaco Sunday Experience will be happening from Sunday July 8 to Sunday September 9.
