The rise in global temperature in recent years has led to a large increase in the melting of the Greenland ..
In 2019 the Greenland Climate Research Centre is entering a new decade and we celebrate this by announcing a new logo and image.
A strong Greenlandic Research Centre
Through the past decade, GCRC has become an integrated part of the research environment in Greenland and the Greenland society. With our new logo we wish to symbolize our new strategy where activities within our Centre aim to benefit locally and be of relevance to the Greenland society
Malene Simon, Head of the Centre says,“Our Centre is entering a new decade. It has evolved tremendously during these 10 years and the Centre has become more integrated in the Greenland society. That is why we have chosen a new logo and image, which is linked to the Greenlandic flag and symbolizes our surrounding nature”
“Because our Centre collaborates internationally and our focus is the Greenland society, we launch the logo in both English and Greenlandic” Malene Simon concludes.
Loaded with meaningful symbols and associations
The new logo reflects the the elements in the Greenland nature that GCRC works with. The triangles represents the mountains and icebergs with the blue sky in the background. The half circle below represents the sea with or without sea ice coverage. The logo has a strong association to the Greenland flag to represent the fact that GCRC is a Greenlandic research centre and all our activities are designed to be of value to the Greenland society.
The logo was designed by the Greenland company Let It Snow APS.
