HRH the Crown Princess of Denmark will attend this year’s Forbes 400 Summit LINK on Philanthropy in New York. HRH will be participating in the summit as President of the Mary Foundation (Mary Fonden) which works to combat bullying and domestic violence as well as to prevent loneliness.

The Forbes summit gathers people from across the world for a discussion on applying wealth and resources to solve today’s most intractable problems. This year, the 400 Summit on Philanthropy will focus on solutions within global healthcare.

The Crown Princess is active in creating awareness on global maternal health and child mortality issues and women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights, including access to family planning. She has travelled with NGO’s and the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs on various visits to countries challenged by these issues.

In 2007, The Crown Princess founded The Mary Foundation with the mission of fighting social isolation, based on the belief that “everyone has the right to belong”. Under her leadership, the foundation brings together untraditional key partners to develop projects in Denmark that create opportunities and empower children, adults and families who find themselves socially isolated or excluded from society. The Crown Princess was selected as a Young Global Leader in 2012 by the World Economic Forum.
