9 - 16 March
Climate change in Greenland is affecting the livelihood of the Greenlandic population. Geographically Greenland is situated between the Arctic and the Atlantic Ocean, with one third of the island being north of the Arctic Circle. Since the middle of the 20th century, the Arctic has been warming 3 or 4 times faster than the rest of the planet. Rising temperatures put increasing pressure on certain plant and tree species and contribute to Greenland's melting ice sheet. This affects and changes the livelihood of the Greenlandic population, particularly the Inuit people, which make up to 80 percent of the total population.
From March 9 to 16, Pancho Campo and the Chrand team will embark on an expedition to East Greenland to record a documentary about the local Inuit people, their culture, and traditions and how climate change is affecting them.
During the visit to this very extreme but sensitive part of the planet our team will go diving under the ice to study the marine environment, mingle with the locals to learn about their food and traditions, visit the hunting sites dog sledding and taste a couple of wines from a glacier, amongst other activities.
