CI Europe supported CEPF to organize a technical meeting at the European Commission with CEPF donors and grantees, followed by a public event to promote the fund at the European level.

The cocktail reception, organized at the Museum of the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences was the opportunity to celebrate CEPF 10th anniversary and to share the new comprehensive strategy for conserving the Mediterranean Basin region.

This event was attended by two guests of honor, HRH Prince Constantijn and HRH Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands. Princess Laurentien, who is very involved in conservation and development issues and a successful author of children’s books, addressed the audience and presented a video featuring our future global leaders: children from all over the world share their refreshing and often moving views on the importance of nature.
