During his commemorative speech, King Philippe praised the efforts of Queen Mathilde and emphasized the strong spirit of solidarity in the country. He highlighted various human qualities such as generosity and care toward those facing difficulties.

He also mentioned the challenges of climate change, the preservation of biodiversity, the energy transition, the proper use of artificial intelligence, social justice, the fair reception of migrants, the aging population, and trust in institutions and democracy.

“For this, we must value our model of society and the human qualities that characterize it, even more so we must develop this model and its qualities within the scope of our commitment in Europe and the world.

The 2030 generation, with its sensitivity, critical spirit, and talents, will soon be entering active life. Let us work together to prepare for the future, utilizing all that makes Belgium strong”.
