A speech by The Duke of Cambridge at Blavatnik School of Government
I wish the current students, faculty and staff of the School the very best as they work in this remarkable new building
Thank you for your warm welcome at the Blavatnik School of Government.
In my visits to other countries, and around the United Kingdom, I meet many people who give remarkable service to their communities: elected officials, members of the armed forces, charity workers, medics and many others – people who are deeply committed to public service. Many of them are animated by dreams and visions of how their societies can be improved.
I can see that the research carried out here and the skills taught here are a means of translating those dreams into practical reality.
I wish the current students, faculty and staff of the School the very best as they work in this remarkable new building. I hope that this place will inspire them, and the generations that follow, to make a real and positive contribution to good government wherever they find themselves in the world.
Congratulations to you all at Oxford University for creating this School of Government, and I offer gratitude on behalf of everyone to Leonard Blavatnik and the Blavatnik family for the gift that has made it possible.
