Prince El Hassan of Jordan enthusiastic about Plant for the Planet

31.10.2008

On October 18th Prince El Hassan bin Talal of Jordan has was awarded the Augsburg Peace Prize. Prof. Dr. Hans Küng gave the address.
Dr. Ernst Oeffner, prize jury chairman spoke of Prince El Hassan as a "bridge-builder between East and West", "tireless organizer of dialogue between religions" and "inspirational visionary for a future, in which the world religions work together for peace, justice and a sustainable integrity for all creatures", making the decision to honor him with the Augsburg Peace Prize a logical choice.
From this vision Prince Hassan has engaged in working on an initiative for a Coalition for the Global Commons that together with the youth initiative Plant for the Planet, supports a youth participation platform.
