Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, contribution to the conservation of the environment is remarkable. Over the years, his role as the President of The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust and Commonwealth Youth Ambassador has been admired by many conservationists.
On Tuesday, Prince was seen to join hands with Dr. Jane Goodall, legendary anthropologist and ethologist, for the conservation of nature. He met young leaders from across the globe, gathered at St. George’s House on the grounds of Windsor Castle. Dr. Goodall is holding a week-long global leadership meeting for her ‘Roots & Shoots’ program, which aims to empower young people to make a difference in the environment.
In the meeting, Prince Harry talked to the students from 26 countries, who were selected to join the week-long residential stay and share their personal projects. Duke shared his concerns over the increasing use of plastic by the companies and consumers. He also stated that the companies should start cleaning the environment, using the profits they have made and look for an alternative method to reduce the use of plastics.
In recent years, Prince Harry has become an inspiration by initiating various conservation-based projects, such as helping in the relocation of 500 elephants in Malawi in order to save them from poaching and working to rebuild the Rhino population in Botswana. He has also made a continued effort to banish single-use plastics, including plastic bottles, straws, and wasteful packaging such as disposable coffee cup lids, from his life and home.
In a speech at the meeting, Prince Harry spoke about how his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, provided inspiration in his fight to protect the environment. Talking about the future, Prince expressed his worries towards nature which seems to have heightened ever since the birth of his first child, Archie.
We are with you on this one, Prince Harry.
