Producing knowledge on the regional impacts of different climate
interventions is vital for meaningful participation in any future
governance processes on targeted or other climate interventions. In this
way, the project would serve the local communities and particularly
Greenland Government. The results of the project will be brought back to Greenland during the 2nd round of community workshops and other methods seen as appropriate by the Greenland Government, ICC Greenland, local communities, and as advised by the International Arktik Hub.
When studying community perspectives and co-producing knowledge on
the possible designs of targeted interventions in Jakobshavn Glacier in
Greenland, youth are in an essential role. We will pay special attention
to inviting youth to the community workshops, for instance through
schools and free time organisations. An art competition will be
organized on the theme of illustrating the youth’s imaginaries on the
future impacted by climate change and/or their wishes and concerns on
the impacts of ice sheet conservation.
