Commentary: Future Greenland 2015: Tourism as the future of Greenland?

    Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingCommentResearch


    Every second year the Greenlandic Business Association host the two-day conference “Future Greenland” in Nuuk. The main theme of this year conference was “Growth and welfare – scenarios for the development of Greenland”. The conference had more than 400 participants - mostly from Denmark and Greenland - but the format of the conference seems to be opening up for international business partners. This year’s conference facilitated a dialogue in Greenlandic, Danish and English. Next year even more interpreters will be needed. To strengthen the outreach, the conference was broadcasted live via KNR (Kalaallit Nunaata Radioa - Greenlandic Broadcasting Corporation) to the rest of Greenland which made the conference even more important as a platform for dialogue on the future of Greenland.
