Frederik VIII Palace, Amalienborg - Recording for a new Mary Foundation film.

 

"Today we are recording for a film about something that strikes at the core of our work.
That everyone has the right to belong and feel as part of something greater than themselves.
That message and work has only become even more relevant with the Corona crisis.
Stay tuned when we release the movie in a few weeks"

"Today I had  a virtual meeting with Development Minister Rasmus Prehn and the Director of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Natalia Kanem, who joined from New York.


The last time we all gathered was (as you can see in the picture) on our visit to Indonesia in December 2019. Together we visited a number of programs that worked to strengthen girls and women's rights. And the month before - in November 2019 - we attended Nairobi ICPD25 conference hosted by Kenya, Denmark and UNFPA. The conference marked the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the Cairo Declaration, which for the first time established that girls and women have the right to decide over their own bodies.

At today's meeting, we discussed how to move forward with the important follow-up work on the more than 1250 national commitments made at the conference. And of course we also talked about the consequences of Covid19 in terms of sexual and reproductive health and rights and the importance of ensuring that women's and girls' special needs are always seen as essential, even in crises. Women do not stop pregnant and give birth just because there is a crisis - it is vital that their special needs continue to be met."

Keynote Statement

 

CROWN PRINCESS MARY OF DENMARK, speaking via video message, said that human rights were the basic rights and freedoms that belonged to every person in the world, from birth until death, regardless of the circumstances. Human rights did not end when emergencies began. Just as pregnancies did not end, when emergencies began. Just as childbirths did not end, when emergencies began. Sexual and gender-based violence did not end when emergencies began either. Rather the contrary, they increased. As health facilities globally were overburdened and supply chains disrupted, women and girls faced limitations - particularly in humanitarian settings - in accessing essential health services, including sexual and reproductive health services. Lockdowns increased the risk of violence and exploitation of children. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization had estimated that COVID-19 had impacted schooling for over 70 per cent of children around the globe. Girls living in emergency contexts were at particular risk of not returning to school. Women and girls’ vulnerability in crises was not a sign of weakness, but of inequality. More than anything, women and girls were powerful and resourceful. More than ever, the current health crisis had demonstrated the need for the international community to work together - it had shown that the strength of unity and the power of joining forces was the world’s best weapon. The international community and humanitarian organizations must consider the unique vulnerabilities of women and girls when designing solutions and implementing them.

"HRH The Crown Princess has today delivered a virtual opening speech at the annual panel debate on women's rights during the 44th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, which this year focused on accountability for women's and girls' rights in humanitarian situations. The opening of the panel is part of Denmark and the Crown Princess 'commitment to women's and girls' sexual and reproductive health and rights, especially in light of the COVID-19 crisis.

Denmark’s membership of the UN Human Rights Council focuses on several human rights priorities, with Denmark having a recognized and leading role internationally. Denmark has a special focus on strengthening women's and girls' rights, including their sexual and reproductive health and rights, so that women's right to decide over their own bodies is secured. This is particularly relevant in light of the COVID-19 crisis, which has - and will continue to have - disproportionate consequences for women's and girls' rights globally."

Sounds like it will be a pre recorded speech, yes. I don't really understand why this is not on the official calendar.

"Ten youth crews from all over the country are participating this weekend in the Youngsters competition, which is Denmark's first youth league competition in sailing

🌊

 
The sailing takes place off Sletten Harbour in Humlebæk, and on Saturday H.R.H. The Crown Prince was on the water parts of the competition at close quarters.
Along the way, His Royal Highness was briefed on the thoughts behind Youngsters, which is part of a development project aimed at recruiting and retaining young sailors aged 15 to 23 years. The project is supported by the Hempel Foundation. Subsequently, the Crown Prince greeted several of the young sailors, who among other things told about their experiences at the event and dreams for the future. "
