H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco Participates in the ‘Les Ateliers: Global Conference’

On September 27, 2011, H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco was in Evian, France to participate in the 2011 Les Ateliers de la Terre: Global Conference.

During this afternoon’s event the prince gave a speech regarding the fragility of the environment as well deforestation:

Almost twenty years ago in Rio, political leaders became aware of the concept of sustainable development. Within the space of a generation, the idea has taken root in many minds, but the balance between its three pillars, economic, social and environmental, is probably still not assured, especially in times of crisis. As far as I see it, taking part in this sixth edition of the Global Conference, thanks to the dialogue established here, is highly likely to contribute towards a better understanding of what could be a more efficient governance of our planet.

For the next day and a half there will be roundtable discussions with hundreds of scholars, researchers, activists, and politicians from around the world to discuss various issues such as biodiversity, energy, the effects of global warming and so on. Finally, H.S.H. Prince Albert II will host a gala dinner this evening at the Hotel Royal in Evian.
