The inaugural « Monte-Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean » - Honoring Leonardo DiCaprio - Thursday September 28th 2017


On Thursday September 28th 2017, during the Monaco Yacht Show, the inaugural “Monte-Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean” will be held on the exclusive Terraces of the Opera of Monte-Carlo, from which proceeds will support the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation’s initiatives in favor of a sustainable global ocean.

Representing more than 70 % of the planet’s surface and 97 % of the biosphere, the global ocean plays a key role in climate regulation, producing 50 % of the oxygen we breathe and absorbing 25 % of the carbon dioxide released in the atmosphere.

Since its inception in 2006, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation has clearly positioned the global ocean among its top priorities. The Foundation’s activities include efforts to better understand the environmental dangers to which our ocean is exposed, fight against plastic pollution, strengthen and develop marine protected areas, conserve endangered species, and promote innovative solutions for a sustainable ocean.

Presided by HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco and hosted by Global Fundraising Chairman Milutin Gatsby, the inaugural “Monte Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean” will honor Leonardo DiCaprio for his outstanding actions for the preservation of our Planet. 

During the evening, Simon de Pury will conduct the live auction, which will be filled with once-in-a-lifetime experiences, collectibles and memorabilia, and selection of fine art from some of the world’s most important artists.

Uma Thurman, Goldie Hawn, Andy Garcia, Kevin Spacey, Eva Longoria, Madonna, Joe Pesci, Martin Scorsese, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tobey Maguire, Enric Sala and Terry Tamminen are among they Event Chairs for the inaugural Monte-Carlo Gala, confirming their commitment for the conservation of our ocean.

We all share a common responsibility to keep our ocean healthy, for the current and next generations, for the future of our Planet. This is the spirit of the “Monte-Carlo Gala for the Ocean”.
