The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation unveils its Re.Generation Future Leaders Program

Press release

Aligned with its commitment to the younger generations, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation is dedicating them a new initiative. The aim? To strengthen the leadership skills of young talents committed to preserving the planet while offering them a space where their voices can be heard.

Re.Generation is about :

10 young people under 35 selected each year to benefit from a training programme to develop their leadership skills
Inspiring masterclasses by renowned environmentalists
Workshops & round tables to stimulate collective thinking on key environmental issues
Site visits & meetings with environmental organisations based in Monaco
A network of active members with whom to exchange throughout the year
A one year communications & media support to increase their visibility on the international stage

The Re.Generation initiative was conceived and built with the support of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, who is very attached to the values of passing on knowledge and skills to the younger generations. The Sovereign has therefore agreed to be the patron of the very first cohort which will be unveiled in July. The cohort will be made up of ten young people under the age of 35, from the Foundation's network, of all geographical, ethnic, gender and sectoral profiles. Businesswomen, activists, researchers, innovators, artists, academics, engineers, influencers, the varied backgrounds of these future leaders will be a real asset both for the community and for accelerating the transition towards more sustainable societies.
