Introduction

The year 2005 marks the 25th anniversary of the Prince of Asturias Awards. To honor the occasion, the UNESCO determined that it would sponsor the commemorative events, recognizing the outstanding part these awards play in furthering mankind's grand achievements in such important fields as culture, science and the humanities.
