Princess Benedikte meeting today with the exchange students from Tasiilaq in Greenland

PPE Agency

Thank you, Eya. :flowers:

The purpose of this exchange is of course allowing pupils to get to know different cultures. I.e. the Danish culture and the Greenlandic culture.
Often the Greenlandic children come from school in hamlets of at best large villages of up to several hundred people.
They will rarely get an opportunity to travel abroad, because it's seriously expensive to travel to or from Greenland on holiday!

Since the largest town in Greenland is Nuuk, with a population of 16.000, imagine landing in Copenhagen for the first time abroad. A city 100 times larger!
The children will never have seen a forest before. A corn field or a sandy beach where you can actually bathe and frolic for hours and still be comfortable... Photos, TV and Internet cannot convey the feeling of actually experiencing it yourself.
That they on top of that get to go to Amalienborg and meet a member of the DRF, who have a big star in Greenland, is an added experience.

Many Greenlanders never leave Greenland. It's either too expensive or simply too much trouble, because wherever they live may so remote that even getting to the airport is a journey in its own right!
The hamlets of western Greenland are dotted over a coastline that can easily rival the length of the entire US East Coast. The modes of transportation are light planes, helicopters, boats or small coasters. - Dog-sleighs are mainly used for long range person-transport on the east coast.

How about going to Canada, I can hear some of you ask.
The Canadian coast opposite western Greenland is even more remote! So remote that agreements have been made between Denmark/Greenland and Canada that Canadians who need treatment may be transported to Greenland if need be. It's simply easier to transport a seriously sick Canadian to Copenhagen than to say Toronto!
