Her Royal Highness Princess Lalla Hasnaa, Chairperson of the Fondation Mohammed VI pour la Protection de l’Environnement, in Tangier on Wednesday, April 14, 2010 inaugurated the 16th edition of the Tangier International Books and Arts Fair organized by the French Institute of Tangier-Tetouan, in partnership with the Tangier Region Association for Cultural Action from 14 to 18 April 2010 under the theme “Talking about the planet, its Peoples and Seas”. Awareness about environmental issues and scientific outreach for young people was organized around themes in connection with biodiversity and the various ecosystems in which human beings live and develop.



Her Royal Highness Princess Lalla Hasnaa visited different stalls at the Fair, the various plastic arts and audio-visual exhibitions; as well as different spaces dedicated to children constituting the focus of this edition by the organization of training workshops for the heads of environmental clubs. This course is designed for trainers of environmental clubs dealing with educational tools previously developed by the “Petits débrouillards” (little go-getters), as well as creative workshops and reading, storytelling, painting, calligraphy and photography workshops.    The event also saw the organization of roundtables involving far-reaching debates, as well as literary, artistic and scientific exchanges with the participation of stakeholders of national and international repute.    Over the years, this Fair has become a cultural event and a pivotal meeting place for book and reading buffs and professionals, with multiple objectives principally focused on young people and reading.
