HRH Prince Philip & ARC (Alliance of Religions & Conservation)
The Alliance of Religions & Conservation (ARC), a secular body whose aim is to assist the major religions of the world to develop environmental programmes based on their own core teachings, beliefs and practices, was founded by Secretary General Martin Palmer & His Royal Highness Prince Philip in 1995.
In 2014 HRH Prince Philip hosted two Arc events at Buckingham Palace, welcoming a delegation of Confucianists in March & a group of ARC partners which included members of the World Bank, UNICEF & The Nature Conservancy, in December.
The Confucianists were also invited to St James’s Palace by Justin Mundy, Director of The Prince’s International Sustainability Unit where a lively & constructive debate took place.
The Bishop of London, The Rt Revd & Rt Hon Richard Chartres led discussions with the ARC Partners at The Old Deanery with animated contributions from Piere Hedel, Director of the Rabobank Foundation & the Daoist Master GE Huifang.
“You were perfect to have around with your experience and calming influence, we’re so happy we found you!”
