Prince William believes that young people have the power to change the world by creating a better tomorrow! As Hello! shares, the Duke of Cambridge penned a powerful foreword for a brand-new campaign called Future Forward, the latest initiative from the Diana Award.
Prince William praises Diana Award and the youth involved
Prince William began his statement by addressing the fact that many young people have had their "education interrupted, work opportunities disrupted and social connections strained" due to the ongoing pandemic. He then went on to applaud their resilience during these challenging times, mentioning their "enormous passion and commitment" for creating change.
William noted that their efforts extend beyond local communities, with these youth "working hard to tackle the social inequality and injustice" that occurs on a global scale. The Duke of Cambridge also spoke of the Diana Award's importance in helping young people affect change, saying the charity is instrumental in "celebrating their successes; creating opportunities for growth" and giving them "a seat at the table."
The Diana Award was founded back in 1999, named after the late Princess of Wales. Both of Diana's sons have been committed to keeping her legacy alive. On what would have been her 60th birthday, they unveiled a special statue of the late royal. Harry is also involved with the Diana Award, and recorded a special message for the charity's annual awards show back in June.
