Monaco's Prince Albert II To Visit Ohio State University


Prince Albert II of Monaco will visit Ohio State University to learn more about the university's research and educational programming on sustainability issues.

The university says the ruler of Monaco will be on campus Wednesday. He is scheduled to give a lecture focusing on climate change, biodiversity and access to clean water.

University officials say Prince Albert is especially interested in sustainability efforts at Ohio Stadium because of plans to build a new stadium in Monaco in the near future.

Albert established the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation in 2006 with the aim of helping protect the environment.

The foundation encourages sustainable management of natural resources and supports innovative and ethical solutions in the areas of climate change, water and biodiversity.
