I enjoy travelling the world and learning about social political issues of shared interest. The expedition that we are about to embark on is our generation’s opportunity to share perceptions on common issues in the Arctic and ideas of how we can resolve them. This expedition team may be young but many of us are not inexperienced. We live in societies with challenges of all sorts: Social, political, economic, demographic and geographical. I would like to use this expedition as an opportunity to grow my understanding of Greenland’s neighbours and foster lasting friendships. There is strength in unity. Hopefully, we will be able to face our common challenges using each other’s knowledge and support. It’s our future. We have to face it and we have to take charge of it.
