The Prince’s message of Hope for 50th Earth Day
The 50th Earth Day took place on 22 April, a day dedicated to supporting environmental protection. For the occasion, the Sovereign gave a message of hope in a video on the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation website.
“While our world is experiencing an unprecedented health crisis, I would like to send you a message of hope and mobilisation. Over the past few weeks, our lives have changed at an unprecedented speed. These upheavals will inevitably continue. It is up to us to turn this situation to our advantage, to ensure that the current suffering leads to a better world….
Through the tremendous social and economic changes it is bringing about, and which is bound to do for many months, perhaps many years still, this crisis should prompt us into protecting our Planet, its climate, biodiversity and oceans more effectively….
In addressing climate change, just as in addressing the coronavirus, our individual actions, efforts and the responsibility of each one of us will help us to overcome the climate urgency which is also putting us in jeopardy. It is the choices each one of us makes that we will enable us to save our environment.
Let us not miss this opportunity. Keep safe, be well and please: stay at home! Thank you”
