albertDet ventes storfint besøk til Kautokeino til vinteren, fyrst Albert av Monaco kommer i mars måned. 

Det er i forbindelse med åpningen av det nye instituttet UArctic Institute on Circumpolar Reindeer Husbandry i Kautokeino (UICRH) i Mars, sendt ut en invitasjon til fyrstehuset i Monaco.

Fyrstehuset har ennå ikke offisielt svart på invitasjonen, men i følge sikre kilder er det meget sannsynlig at fyrsten takker ja til invitasjonen.

Tett samarbeid

Fyrst Albert er kjent for sitt klimaengasjement, og har blant annet etablert miljøfondet «Fyrst Albert II av Monaco Fond» som er engasjert i miljøprosjekter verden over.

Sist juni i Oslo ble det inngått samarbeidsavtale mellom Fyrst Albert II av Monaco Fond, og University of Arctic, og på grunnlag av det inviteres nå fyrsten til kautokeino.
