About Women's Rights, Green GM Technology and Skiing Competitions

Longest blog title ever? Seems like we missed a whole bunch of stuff happening in Liechtenstein during the last couple of days so let's quickly catch up! Already between March 3rd and 5th, the Heidegger Talentecup, a competition for young skiing hopefuls, took place in Malbun and Hochegg, Liechtenstein's skiing areas. As a surprise for all the children, Hereditary Prince Alois came along on the last day to hand out the medals. For pictures, have a look on the event's Facebook page

A few days later, most likely on the 7th, the Private University of the Principality of Liechtenstein organised a lecture on "Green GM Technology as interface between society and science". The event was also attended by the Hereditary Prince.

Most recently on International Women's Day, March 8th that is, Hereditary Princess Sophie attended a talk on the subject "Women in Wars and Armed Conflicts" held in Schaan. The two speakers of the event included International Criminal Court (ICC) judge Sanji Mmasenono Monageng and Sarah Abu Assali, a Syrian journalist, peace activist and member of the Syrian Women's League. 1 FL TV reported about the talk in this video which includes a few glimpses of the Hereditary Princess.
