HRH Crown Princess Mary’s speech

“Good morning everyone. It is such a pleasure for me to be here today and thank you for a great but, warm morning run.

Today’s festival marks the culmination of the Youth Innovation Summit. I imagine that the past four days have been challenging and maybe even frustrating, inspiring, an eye-opener – and hopefully rewarding in many ways.

The ambitious 2030 Agenda with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals was agreed upon in response to the global challenges we are facing and the fact that no single country, region or person can solve them alone. These challenges are so big, complex and inter-connected it will require partnerships and innovative solutions on a level that we are yet to see…”
