  • The Prince gives a speech about the rainforests

Over the years The Prince of Wales has founded a number of initiatives in order to try and help communities locally and globally.

The Prince has long been sensitive to the plight of sheep farmers in this country and abroad and through two particular initiatives, the Campaign for Wool and The Mutton Renaissance, has sought to improve the prices of two of their main products. 

Both the Campaign for Wool and the Mutton Renaissance initiatives aimed to repopularise two products:  wool as a natural fire-retardant and sustainable fabric; and mutton as a tasty alternative to lamb, in order to help sheep farmers gain a better profit and thus protect their way of life.

The Prince’s Rainforests Project was set up in October 2007 by The Prince of Wales to find practical solutions to slow tropical deforestation and combat climate change.

START is an initiative inspired by The Prince of Wales, which aims to provide people with simpler steps towards sustainable living.

In 2010, The Prince conducted a tour to a number of projects across the country, where he saw first-hand a number of inspiring ways that people are making a start.

The Prince visited projects in Glasgow; Edinburgh; Bristol; Carmarthen; Manchester; Todmorden; Newcastle; Nottingham; Birmingham and culminating in London with A Garden Party to Make a Difference in the grounds of Clarence House, Lancaster House and Marlborough House.
