The Prince of Wales visits University of Nottingham Malaysia campus

His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales (Prince Charles) visited the University of Nottingham Malaysia campus last week during his first visit to Malaysia.

After officially launching the 2017 Commonwealth Youth Summit, HRH met with staff and students to learn about the University’s work on sustainability and environmental education. He also met with representatives of student societies aiming to making a difference in the local community.

The visit included a special trip to Crops for the Future (CFF) to see world-changing research into ‘forgotten foods’ and how maximising the potential of the world’s underutilised crops might address global food security issues. The Prince of Wales helped officially launch the Forgotten Foods Network, a new platform for sharing information on foods, recipes and traditions that are in danger of being lost.

University of Nottingham Malaysia CEO and Provost Professor Graham Kendall said he was delighted to host HRH.

He said: “Today is another milestone at the University as we host the Prince of Wales during his maiden visit to one of the first British campuses outside of the UK and we are very pleased to have an opportunity for our staff and students to have a royal encounter with the Prince of Wales.”
