At the Greenland Climate Research Centre it is very important that our activities are of relevance to Greenlandic society – from small communities to larger towns – as well as to industry and resource management institutions. As we develop new research projects, we closely communicate and collaborate with industry, management and local community partners. We recognize the value of local and indigenous knowledge and the importance of community-based research.
Working hand in hand with Greenlandic citizens, local hunters and the commercial fishing industries, we seek to understand and provide insights into the past, present and future use of natural resources. By combining natural science, social science, indigenous and local knowledge, our work takes a holistic approach to help us better understand the natural environment and the interactions between people and their surroundings.
