Hungarian President Áder sets up Blue Planet climate protection foundation

President János Áder on Saturday announced the establishment of a Blue Planet (Kék Bolygó) Foundation aimed at preventing climate change. 

At a press conference, Áder said that

the foundation was set up using nearly 234,400 GB pounds, left to the Hungarian president by electrical engineer Miklós Balázs, who died in Manchester in 2013. 

According to Balázs’s will, the funds should be used to the benefit of Hungary’s people.

János Martonyi, Hungary’s former foreign minister and head of the new foundation’s board, said at the press conference that most global risks were linked to human activities and ways of prevention should be given more focus. Climate change, he warned, is connected to natural disasters, terrorism and migration. He voiced hope that the new foundation will effectively contribute to combatting global risks and the ramifications of climate change.
