The Prince and Princess of Asturias and of Girona presented the Prince of Girona Foundation in Aragon in one of a series of public activities that are planned to be held in different places in Spain to make the Foundation known. This was the second presentation that has been made, following the one which took place in Seville on the past 25 February.

In his speech, Prince Felipe pointed out that the Prince of Girona Foundation seeks "to collaborate on the better training of our young people, to act as a forum of reflection, and to foster projects of social character in the broadest sense of this concept". His Royal Highness emphasized that young people form one of the groups which are most seriously affected by the grave economic crisis that we are suffering. The Prince also said that "the promotion of the skills and abilities of young people and of their drive and leadership should be one of our firmest and clearest endeavours".

The Prince and the Princess were welcomed on their arrival at the Great Hall of the University of Zaragoza by the President of the Government of Aragon, Marcelino Iglesias; the Government Delegate in Aragon, Javier Fernández; the Acting Mayor of Zaragoza, Fernando Gimeno, the Rector of the University of Zaragoza, Manuel López Pérez, and the President of the Prince of Girona Foundation, Antoni Esteve. During the presentation ceremony of the Prince of Girona Foundation, speeches were given by the Acting Mayor of Zaragoza, the President of the Prince of Girona Foundation, the President of the Government of Aragon, and the professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of the University of Oviedo, Carlos López-Otín, who gave the keynote address  "Youth, Culture and Other Dreams". Prince Felipe's words brought the event to an end.
