H.R.H. Prince Guillaume, The Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg was in Wiesbaden, Germany on May 25, 2011, on business with the L’Université du Luxembourg (University of Luxembourg.)
The purpose of the trip, according to the Cour Grand-Ducale de Luxembourg website, was to “… explore the possibilities of ‘social business.” The purpose for this notion of social business is to:
…solve social problems, like charitable organizations, with the difference that they operate according to economic principles and that their profits are reinvested.
This is the area that the City of Wiesbaden claims a leading role and can already boast of many projects that can be used to generate ideas. The study tour was organized by the Unit for Sustainable Development at the L’Université du Luxembourg under the direction of Dr. Ariane König, in collaboration with the Grameen Creative Lab, and with the support of the Grand Ducal Court of Luxembourg as well as with the Ministry of Economy.
The aim of the operation was to gather ideas for projects to be implemented in Luxembourg.
