Queen Mathilde Receives BAMBI Award
Yesterday, Thursday November 21, Her Majesty Queen Mathilde received the Charity BAMBI Award “for her many years of dedication and personal contribution to the debate on sustainable development and her commitment to social and humanitarian goals”.
The ceremony took place at the Festspielhaus opera and concert house in Baden-Baden, Germany, and was broadcasted live on the German TV channel “Das Erste”.
In her speech the Queen thanked the organisers for the award adding that the future of the children is “our responsibility and our societies will benefit from their development. Investing in human capital is essential for prosperity and protection of children’s rights is a cause that is especially dear to me personally. Vulnerable children, in particular, deserve our attention”. Queen Mathilde dedicated the award “to vulnerable children and youngsters, wherever they are growing up”.
Established in 1948, the BAMBI Awards are an annual event organised by Hubert Burda Media and awards personalities in the media, arts, culture, sports and other fields who ispire and impress with their actions, talents and visions.
