GREGERS FASCINATION FOR THE ARCTIC AND ANTARCTIC
In 1999 I crossed Greenland from west to east together with two friends Kalle Kronholm and Kristian Joos. I 2001 Kristian Joos and I reached the South Pole after 56 days and 1.149,41 km (714 miles) on skis. We had completed the first Danish South Pole expedition. My deep fascination with the spectacular nature, the old polar explorers and a better understanding of the Arctic and Antarctic is the foundation for POLARSKOLEN (Danish for POLARSCHOOL). Key questions to be answered: What are the consequences for Greenland and Denmark now that the sea ice is melting in the Arctic? Why has Greenland and Denmark jointly made a claim on the seabed below the North Pole? These questions and many more will put into relevance by POLARSKOLEN.
