The Princess of Asturias, also known as the Princess of Girona, said, “Tonight, we are brought together by the talent of our five award-winners and their commitment to society and the challenges they face. The five are indisputable references who have I have taken advantage of the opportunities so that their career has a clear purpose with a social impact. I have spoken with them and with other young people about the concerns of our generation, what it means to train, how to find and develop one’s own talent, and how to prepare for new skills through innovative educational models, the awareness of living in a balanced way on our planet, life projects when you are twenty or twenty-five years old.”
