Today, Wednesday August 24, Crown Princess Mary started the second day of the working visit to Greenland by attending the conference “Together on Grief” in her capacity as patron of Children, Youth & Grief and the National Grief Center. The conference, attended by representatives from the Government of Greenland and authorities, was focused on the grief. The Crown Princess, in her speech, stated that “Grief is one of the hardest things and something most people have experienced. Grief can come suddenly. Like something unexpected. Grief takes up a lot and can take over one’s life, at least for a period of time” and stressed the importance to “talk about grief. Because talking about it can help ease the grief – just a little bit”.
Afterwards Crown Princess Mary attended an event organized by UNLEASH, a “non-profit organization with a mission to accelerate positive change toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”. At the event were present young people from the Nordic and Arctic countries involved in sustainability, environment, health and education projects.
Crown Princess Mary ended the working visit at the UNICEF Denmark’s office in Greenland. Since 2011, UNICEF Denmark established the NAKUUSA project that aims “to increase Greenlanders’ awareness of the principles and values of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and thereby strengthen the foundation for their implementation”.
