Increased knowledge about Greenland, the Faroe Islands and the Arctic
Much of the Arctic land mass and seas belong to the Nordic Region, and the Nordic countries are heavily involved in issues that concern this unique and harsh, but also vulnerable part of the world.
The Arctic is under pressure due to climate change and increased human pressure. Oil, gas and minerals have become more accessible than before. What are the consequences for Greenland, Denmark and the other nations in the Arctic that the sea ice and the icecap in Greenland is melting?
Due to climate change Greenland and Denmark has huge challenges. The Kingdom of Denmark (Denmark, Faroe Islands and Greenland) is challenged and Denmark`s traditional role in the Arctic is under revision. How will Denmark`s relation to Greenland adapt to the fact that Greenland becomes more and more independent? and why has Greenland and Denmark jointly made a claim on the seabed below the North Pole?
These are the kind of questions that POLARSKOLEN (Danish for POLARSCHOOL) would like to put into context for students from 7-10 grade.
