On Monday Dutch Prime Minister Jan-Peter Balkenende received the statement of principles of ‘Planet First!’, from the Nationale Postcodeloterij (National Postal Code Lottery) and the Institute for Sustainable Innovation & Development (ISID). The chairman of the ISID is Prince Carlos of Bourbon-Parma, son of the duke of Parma and princess Irene of The Netherlands. The prince was accompanied by Boudewijn Poelmann, chairman of the Nationale Postcodelotterij. The report is a plea for ‘new priorities, because there are limits to what earth has to offer us’. The lottery will use the statement as a guideline in handing out money to various good causes, says Mr. Poelmann.

Prince Carlos of Bourbon-Parma recently got engaged to the Dutch journalist Annemarie Gualtherie van Weezel. Only a few days ago an interview was published in which the prince said that he and his fiancee will marry in Brussels.
