The Crown Prince and Crown Princess in Davos
Their Royal Highnesses The Crown Prince and Crown Princess are once again in the town of Davos, Switzerland, where they have attended the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting this week. Today the Crown Prince and Crown Prince met with the Norwegian media.
We must also incorporate the voices of young people, because it is they who will be forging the path to new solutions, said Crown Princess Mette-Marit during a press conference prior to Statkrafts session entitled Climate Change: The Role of Youth.
The Crown Prince and Crown Princess took part in the press conference together with CEO of Statkraft, Christian Rynning-Tønnesen, and Anders Mjaset, a member of the Oslo hub of the Global Shapers Community. Crown Princess Mette-Marit is a mentor for the Oslo hub of the community, which is a network of young leaders under the auspices of the World Economic Forum.
The Crown Princess has been a member of the board of the Global Shapers Community since autumn 2012.
Mr Mjaset established the Mesh network for young entrepreneurs in 2012. Located in downtown Oslo, Mesh provides entrepreneurs with a work space in a social environment and seeks to inspire more Norwegians to start their own companies.
