HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco: Environmental Protection as main Challenge of the 21st Century

Actual facts: In April 2006 he guided an expedition of sleigh dogs to the North Pole, to awaken public opinion in view of the global warming. He became the first current leader of a state to reach the North Pole. In June 2006 his Highness established his own foundation dedicated to environmental protection and sustainable development.
