Meanwhile in Brussels, His Royal Highness Prince Philippe of Belgium attended the 2012 Prix du Fonds Prince Philippe Award ceremony held at the Palais des Academies.
According to the official website for the Belgian monarchy the Prix du Fonds Prince Philippe are presented annually to:
…one or more initiatives stimulating dialogue and exchanges between the three communities of our [Belgium] country. This can be partnerships between organizations from two or more communities or initiative specific to an organization aimed at building bridges between communities.
The winners received a crisp piece of paper with their name on it and a check for 15,000 Euros. Not bad. 🙂
