NewsThree heirs to the throne studying climate change
Towards the end of May, three heirs to the Scandinavian thrones visit Greenland. They are Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, Crown Princess Viktoria of Sweden and Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, who are undertaking a joint study trip with a focus on climate change in Greenland. Together with climate scientists, the heirs to the thrones will take a closer look at how global climate change is affecting Greenland and the population of Greenland. The party is travelling aboard the Offshore Patrol Vessel “H.D.M.S. Ejnar Mikkelsen” from Kangerlussuaq to Disko Bay. In Qeqertarsuaq, they will look at sustainable energy, and a visit to the Arctic Station is also on the agenda. At Ilulissat, the heirs to the thrones will view the glacier that has been retreating the most rapidly in recent years.
