Created by Sovereign Ordinance 7.253 of December 14, 2018, the Prince Albert I Commemoration Committee is responsible for the study and organization of events scheduled to celebrate the life and work of Prince Albert I, between 2019, year of the centenary of the creation of the International Commission for the Scientific Exploration of the Mediterranean Sea, and 2022, year of the centenary of its disappearance.
Under the Chairmanship of H.E.Mr Robert Fillon, the Executive Committee ** will work towards the realization of the program and the implementation of the events. It will hold its first meeting tomorrow. Different types of actors will be mobilized to carry out projects of all kinds intended for very diverse audiences.
In his speech, HSH the Sovereign Prince stressed: "I am convinced that a good celebration of the work of Prince Albert I can only be in the image of it: varied in form as in substance It should address different audiences: the academic world, those curious about the history of science, international relations, peace activism, as well as all those who are interested in the Principality in a way or in another, without forgetting the students and pupils of our schools. I expect, of course, that it uses the most modern production and dissemination techniques, without abandoning traditional supports when they appear better suited. "
