Historical Meeting with H.S.H Princess Theodora Von Liechtenstein
Monday 16th May, 2022 was considered to be a historical and auspicious moment for The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Seychelles due to the fact that six bronze participants from Plaisance Secondary School Award Center along with the Principal Secretary (PS) for Youth and Sports, Mr. Ralph Jean-Louis, Chief Policy Analyst (CPA), Ms. Begitta Jeannevole, Chairman of the National Award Operator, Assistant Programme Officer Mr. Neil Waye-Hive including the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs met with H.S.H Princess Theodora Von Liechtenstein from Italy.
The meeting which was held at the Family House in Bel Eau covered discussion focused mainly on how environmental issues are incorporated in the Award Programme as well as how The DofE can benefit from her NGO, The Green Teen Team (GTT) Foundation. One particular area evoked was how to encourage participants to help save endangered endemic species of plants and animals.
The meeting ended with a symbolic tree planting activity whereby two participants assisted the H.S.H Princess Theodora and PS Jean-Louis to plant an endemic “Bwa Sagay” sapling before presenting tokens from PS Jean-Louis and the Award participants to Princess Theodora.
