Scandinavian Trio to Head to Greenland Later this Month
The three heirs to the Scandinavian thrones of Denmark, Norway and Sweden will embark on a six-day trip to Greenland later this month, to gain insight into how climate change is affecting the nation and its people.
Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, Crown Prince Haakon of Norway and Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden will travel aboard the HDMS Ejnar Mikkelsen ship from Kangerlussuaq, in south-western Greenland, through Disko Bay where they will observe the changes to the natural environment that climate change has caused, and listen to lectures on the affects on the Artic environment.
The trio will be accompanied by several internationally renowned researchers, and will also visit Qeqertarsuaq and Ilulissat. Various research stations will be visited along the visit, which runs from May 27th to June 1st.
The visit follows the heirs’ June 2008 visit to Svalbard in Norway, which also focused on climate change.
