22nd Information and Discussion Meeting between the Prince's Government and Monegasque International Solidarity Organisations
The 22nd Information and Discussion Meeting between the Prince's Government and Monegasque International Solidarity Organisations (ISO) was held on Tuesday 24 September at the Rainier III Auditorium and chaired by Isabelle Rosabrunetto, Director General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation.
Thirty or so NGOs, foundations and service clubs attended this meeting, which was organised by the Department of International Cooperation (DCI).
In her welcoming speech, Ms. Rosabrunetto thanked the ISOs for their commitment to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations. She also congratulated them on the creation of the first Monegasque ISO photography competition - on the theme of "A Sustainable and United View" - as well as on the first Monegasque ISO Forum, to be held in 2020. These events, organised in conjunction with the DCI, are an opportunity to raise awareness among the general public and schoolchildren of the ISOs' activities and of international solidarity in general.
During this meeting, several ISOs took the floor to present their activities, as well as the platform osimonaco.org, which includes 50 structures and a dedicated Facebook page.
The French NGO La Guilde Européenne du Raid (The European Guild), which was invited by the DCI, gave a presentation on some of its activities of possible interest to Monegasque ISOs, such as volunteering, project assessment and capacity building through tailor-made training.
