The three-day conference will focus on the:

“…special emphasis to the human factor and its role in shaping our tomorrow. We will ask whether the quality of leadership – in all realms of human activity – can make a difference. What is the desired dynamic in relationships between people and leaders in the face of powerful processes of change? To what degree can human beings really be involved in influencing their futures? We will examine what threats may lie in an individual’s tomorrow, in terms of identity, family, health, ability to find happiness, and meaning in life.” 

Prior to the sovereign prince’s attendance at  President Peres birthday celebrations this evening he had a chance to visit the famous Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Museum in Jerusalem.  Whilst there Prince Albert II toured the Hall of Names as well as placed a wreath in the Hall of Remembrance.
