The Grand Duchess accompanied by the President of the Chamber of Deputies and the Minster of Family attended the exhibit "A New Humanity Without Misery Will Be Born". The exhibit was organized to mark the 30th anniversary of the World Rejection of Misery Day which coincides with the 25th anniversary of when the United Nation's also recognized this day as the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.

In Luxembourg, the event and celebration also, not coincidentally, marks the culmination of the international campaign "Stop Poverty: Acting for Dignity", of which the Grand Duchess is patroness. The campaign is sponsored by ATD Fourth World Luxembourg.
