THE PRINCE’S FOUNDATION PROVIDES HOLISTIC SOLUTIONS TO CHALLENGES FACING THE WORLD TODAY. WE CHAMPION A SUSTAINABLE APPROACH TO HOW WE LIVE OUR LIVES AND BUILD OUR COMMUNITIES, WE RUN A DIVERSE PROGRAMME OF EDUCATION AND TRAINING FOR ALL AGES AND BACKGROUNDS, AND WE REGENERATE AND CARE FOR PLACES WHERE COMMUNITIES THRIVE AND THAT VISITORS ENJOY.
We work nationally and internationally but at the heart of our organisation is the heritage-led regeneration of the Dumfries House estate and its wider community, where our principles and philosophies are explored and put into practice.
The work of The Prince’s Foundation is inspired by The Prince of Wales’s philosophy of harmony: that by understanding the balance, the order and the relationships between ourselves and the natural world we can create a more sustainable future.
For more than 40 years His Royal Highness has been at the forefront of championing sustainability. During the last decade the impact of natural resource depletion, climate change and rapid urbanisation has become evident and widely understood. The work of The Prince’s Foundation is inspired by the belief that only by taking a holistic view can we create a sustainable future to meet the needs of our world.
The Prince’s Foundation was created through the merger, in 2018, of The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community, The Prince’s Regeneration Trust, The Great Steward of Scotland’s Dumfries House Trust and The Prince’s School of Traditional Arts.
