hi renata !

People from south east of France are always concerned about the Mediterranean Sea, especially about pollution. Sometimes the huge number of tourists doesn't help to have a clean blue sea !

I can understand that. Have you had any contacts with the PA2 Foundation yet?

Well, it's indeed a special name - clever of you to think of it!

It's nice to see that PA and his foundation cares about vultures. They have been unjustly regarded as ugly and portrayed as ... well, vultures.

A special day at the Monaco Pavilion at Shanghai:

Yesterday, a special visitor was brought to the Monaco Pavilion, in the shape of Xing Yi, a young girl of 18, who has an unusual illness. Her "nickname" is "fille de verre" - girl of glass. apparently her bones break like glass, and she's had many operations.

Her chauffeur has organised for her a secret journey to the Shanghai Expo, and she said she liked the Monaco Pavilion best because everything possible was done for her to make this special visit possible.

The Pavilion boasts an "easy access" gate; people with special needs don't have to queue for hours...

The PAII Foundation was established three years ago, and in that time it has received 1011 requests for the funding of projects via the foundation's website.

On Saturday, October 10th, 2009 was the "Second Edition" of prizegivings.

The next Board of directors' meeting meets again on October 8th, 2010.

I assume the "Third Edition" will be in October 2010.....

The "Third Edition" was indeed in October, when PA visited the Monaco Pavilion at the Shanghai Expo.
It's the first time that the awards were presented outside of Monaco.

Climate Change Award: James Lovelock from Britain

Biodiversity Award: Peter Hamilton Raven from US

Water and Desertification Award: Malin Falkenmark from Sweden
I'll add a Wikipedia page...

Special Award: China Vanke Company Ltd. / Mr. Wang Shi

*******************

FPA concentrates on three geographical regions
(Mediterranean Basin, Polar Regions, and Least Developed Countries)....

...and three main sectors:
Climate Change and Renewable or Alternative energies;
Biodiversity
and Water and Fight against Desertification.

In Brussels on March 20th, Johnson Controls will sort out the vehicles and buildings of the Principality. This partnership is between FPA2, the company, and "The Climate Group", in readiness for the "Forum Euroméditerranéen sur l'Efficacité Energique" 2001.

On 28th March 2011, the PA2 Foundation has teamed up with the Peregrine Fund, to help conservation work with these - rather regal - birds.
Fondation Prince Albert II de Monaco

This bird wasn't singled out by FPA2 - the Peregrine Falcon has always been associated with kings and princes.
It's also a species in which the females are larger than the males !!

This April, PA has "put his money where his mouth is", by installing a photovoltaic solar power unit at the headquarters of the Prince Albert II Foundation, the Villa Girasole. The installation encompasses sixty square metres.

The villa houses 25 office staff.

In March, the Prince Albert II Foundation has signed an accord with the National Geographic Society.

Dr. Enric Sala is a member of the NGS, and he is keen to start the collaboration, especially with the Monaco Blue Initiative.

The Partnership between Johnson Controls and FPA2 took one step further on May 11th, 2011, when the Foundation and Johnson Controls jointly inaugurated and opened the Euro-Mediterranean Forum 2011 about "Energy Efficiency"; this includes efficiency in industry, buildings, and towns/cities in Europe and the Mediterranean basin.

Amongst the invited was Alain Hubert who collaborated with PA at the North Pole.

The 19th "Nuit du Pérou" (or, correctly, "Nuit de l'Amérique Latine") netted 82 000 euros for Amazonian rainforests, via Sotheby's Monaco.

In the presence of PA, the cheque was presented by Michel Pastor to Bernard Fautrier (husband of Cathérine) on behalf of the PA2 Foundation.

Some of the money was passed on to the Field Museum of Natural History.

Matéo Mornar - a famous sculptor who lives in Nice - has donated one of his sculptures for the benefit of the Fondation Prince Albert II de Monaco.

The work - named Pegasus (Pégase) - is at present situated in the avenue des Spélugues.

Later, the two tonne item is moved to the Café de Paris.

In July it moves - appropriately - to the Jumping International de Monte-Carlo.
