The Inaugural Summit for the Forum of Young Global Leaders in Zermatt, Switzerland lived up to its billing as a gathering together of some of the world’s best and brightest lights, and leaders for the future.
Here I am engaging in a passionate, interactive conversation about poverty eradication strategies, and the empowerment of the poor, with H.R.H. Crown Prince Haakon of Norway and other YGL members. The Crown Prince, heir to the Norwegian throne and son of His Majesty King Harold and Her Majesty Queen Sonja, is very sharp, and cares deeply about the issue of poverty. We had several good interactions together, both in our formal and informal discussions. The Crown Prince is also a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Development Programme where e focuses on promoting the Millennium Developmental Goals.
Onward and with HOPE,
