Greenland’s national day also gave rise to a visit in the Arctic House from the both the Arctic ambassador, Hanne Fugl Eskjær, and the CEO of Greenland’s representation in Copenhagen, Lida Skifte Lennert.
Cooperation and knowledge – shared benefits
With a 40 year tradition of working together through the Greenlandic harbor, Aalborg has become Denmark’s gateway to the Arctic. Arctic Consensus is an extension of this long term collaboration. Through knowledge and partnerships we work to enhance unique collaboration between the Arctic, Denmark, and the EU. Arctic Consensus aims to strengthen the relations between Denmark and the Arctic region, as well as calling attention to North Denmark’s unique Arctic skills in a national and international context. We base the work on mutual respect and a mindset in which all parties in the collaboration should benefit.
