GREEN LAND OF NORSE AND INUIT
The story of two of Greenland’s UNESCO world heritage sites, cultural landscapes with very different stories. Kujataa in South Greenland is the lushest part of the country and is a subarctic farming landscape which combines the cultures of the Norse and the Inuit. Aasivissuit – Nipisat is an ancient Inuit hunting ground that has been used for over 4,000 years and which stretches from Greenland’s inland ice cap all the way to the sea. Liz Cooper of Visit Greenland & Copenhagen Business School introduces the two landscapes and shows images of ice and snow – and some of the greener aspects that gave the island its Norse name.
