ATP travelled to the capital of Greenland to provide relevant information about the outcome of the ATP project to Inuit and government stakeholders. Paul Wassmann met first the research co-ordinators of the Ministry of Education and Research, Najaaraq Paniula and Lone Nukaaraq Møller, of Naalakkersuisut, the Government of Greenland. He then visited the head office office of the Inuit Circumpolar Council (ICC) in Greenland and communicated ATP relevant information to the President of ICC Greenland and ICC Vice-Chair, Carl-Christian Oslen and Advisor on Environmental Issues, Parnuna Egede. Finally, after returning to Copenhagen, Wassmann met ICC president Aqqaluk Lynge.
Through all three meetings essential ATP results of relevance for the Inuit population of Greenland (e.g. Changes in harvestable production as a function of global arming) were explained and discussed. Future opportunities of research and education were evaluated. It was concluded that the contacts between Europe and a neighbouring country such as Norway were sporadic and not adequate as compared to the climatic challenges facing all northern Europeans. It would be highly profitable for both countries to intensify the scientific activities in the Fram Strait which has 80 % or so of the entire outflow of water from the Arctic Ocean, but is only rudimentarily known.
