monaco8217s-prince-albert-ii---crusader-for-the-environment-2009-07-17_lPrince Albert II of Monaco is getting his green on later this week at the The National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

Albert will discuss sustainable practices undertaken by the Principality of Monaco and address the need to draw global attention to protect the marine environment.

The Prince is founder and chairman of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, which supports sustainable and ethical projects around the world that focus on climate change and developing renewable energies.

Earlier this year, Ecorazzi reported that the Prince suggested:

“We have to move away from a society that is obsessed with consumption and consumerism, so perhaps we need to reexamine our lifestyles and consider how our actions and daily life are affecting our world.”

We couldn’t agree more! Keep up the great work, Alby!
