English Royal House article about yesterday's engagements: Crown Prince in New York - The Royal House of Norway
Quote:
The 73rd Session of the UN General Assembly is underway, and the high-level week that kicks off the session is the most important week on the UN calendar. Many countries are represented at the highest level, and a large number of meetings, conferences and receptions are being held.

Crown Prince Haakon has a full agenda this week, with a special emphasis on sound management of the oceans, seas and marine resources and on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
BTW: Prime Minister Erna Solberg said to the Norwegian media that it was very benefittary for Norway's candidacy for a seat in the UN Security Council in 2021-22 to have the Crown Prince on the team.
The PM also said (humorously) that it was good for Haakon to campaign for something, since he is not allowed to do that at home (politically, she meant).

English version of the Royal House article: Managing the oceans - The Royal House of Norway
Quote:
Norway has taken a leading role in international efforts to promote sound, evidence-based management of the oceans. The objective is to expand understanding of the major role that the oceans can play in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals of eradicating hunger and poverty provided that there is a good balance between conservation and sustainable harvesting.

Crown Prince Haakon stressed precisely this today when he spoke at the UN Global Compact workshop The Ocean Retreat:

''Estimates show that we will be about 10 billion people on the planet by 2050. 10 billion people will need food, energy and means of transport. Many of our future solutions to these challenges lie in the ocean. But all this depends on our ability to manage our oceans sustainably today.

According to the OECD, the ocean economy alone could create 40 million jobs globally by 2030. Unleashing the tremendous, untapped potential of our oceans is key to reaching our Sustainable Development Goals.

But, unless we take steps to safeguard the marine environment, we will not be able to harvest the wealth of the ocean,'' the Crown Prince stated.

English Royal House article about the latest events: A soccer tournament to change the world - The Royal House of Norway
Quote:
A women's soccer tournament is helping to shine a spotlight on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in New York City. Each team champions one of the SDGs - and their goals reach far beyond the soccer field.

Each year during the United Nations’ high-level week, the teams that have qualified to compete in the Global Goals World Cup convene for a tournament. These players have already carried out wide-ranging efforts to promote their selected SDG. They might have collected donations for the local school, demonstrated for measures to mitigate climate change, or a myriad other activities to help achieve their goal.

English Royal House article with video: Why I believe in a brighter future - The Royal House of Norway
Quote:
“Development and Human Progress: Why I believe in a brighter future” was the title of His Royal Highness Crown Prince Haakon’s lecture at the International Conference on Sustainable Development at Columbia University in New York City.

First he took the audience back in time for a brief perspective on everything humankind has achieved up to now, which is a great deal. Despite the impression given by the media, the world has made enormous advances in key areas such as poverty, education, health and life expectancy.
--------------------

Well, this was it for CP Haakon in New York.
And the CP-Couple's ''good period'' when it comes to how they are portrayed in the Norwegian media (which I wrote about in this post) seams to continue.
Because, as I've written in other threads, Haakon/MM's UN engagements are usually criticized by commentators as an interference in pollitics. - But this time, nothing at all!
Why? Well, although the CP-Couple's personal popularity has plummeted after the media started with a more critical coverage of them in 2013, the support for the institution of the monarchy has gone from strong to stronger. - And therefore, the television/newspaper commentators have probably found out that there is no point in continuing, at least not when it comes to stuff like this.

By that one can see that this criticism has nothing to do with "public opinion", but a rather orchestered media campaign to direct/ guide public opinion in a certain direction
