Meeting of H.R.H. with Olot’s civil society

Prince Felipe Meets with the Civil Society of Olot in an Event Organized by the Foundation


On the occasion of H.R.H. Prince Felipe's visit to Olot on the past 25 February, the Prince of Girona Foundation held a meeting with a group of people representing the town's social, cultural, artistic, sports and business spheres.

At a lunch presided over by H.R.H., the people in attendance had the opportunity to share their concerns and their views on the challenges of the future, especially in connection with the personal and occupational development of young people.

Work and training, culture and art as means of promoting the town and its people, and creativity and innovation as pillars of the productive economy of the future were some of the aspects dealt with at the meeting.

The role of sport and solidarity as elements of social cohesion was another focus of the speeches that were made and of the discussion which took place afterwards.

Likewise, the conversations that were held in the course of the meeting will be of key importance in helping to define the Prince of Girona Foundation's future activity. Prince Felipe, who is the Foundation's Honorary President, emphasized the organization's wish to do all that is within its power to contribute to the task of meeting the challenges pointed out by the people in attendance, and especially the challenges connected with youth.

In addition to the more than 25 representatives of the civil society of Olot, the meeting was attended by the town's Mayor, Mr. Lluís Sacrest; the Secretary of State for Research, Mr. Felipe Pétriz; the Minister of Culture of the Government of Catalonia, Mr. Ferran Mascarell, and the President of the La Garrotxa County Council, Mr. Joan Espona.
