Protecting & progressing Planetary Health for the present and future generations

Establishing a new relationship with Nature was already a major concern for HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco when he decided, in June 2006, to set up a Foundation dedicated to protecting the environment and promoting sustainable development at local and global level.

Since then, active all over the world, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation has sought to bring together scientists, political leaders and economic and civil society stakeholders behind a vital objective for our future – protecting the ocean and the land. The Foundation’s long-term action has led to some encouraging victories being won, whether in safeguarding endangered species or improving living conditions in rural communities by implementing new sustainable and ethical solutions.

Every project supported represents another step forward for the planet, whose current state of health calls for more ambitious and decisive measures.
