A part of the Greenland Perspective initiative is to contribute to education at all levels: Primary, high school and universities.
We do it by contributing to educational material, by involving university students in our projects and by collecting and showcasing publications made by students which are relevant to our themes.
If you are a student and would like to contribute to the Greenland Perspective initiative, please feel free to contact us for a talk about the possibilities.

Interactive teaching material
"Greenland today" (Dagens Grønland) is an interactive education site for secondary school pupils in Denmark. The material is designed to give the pupils knowledge about modern Greenland, to provoke thoughts and to instigate curiosity. The material is based on "dilemmas" and give the pupils tools to form their own opinions. Greenland Perspective has contributed to the material with a number of articles on the possibilities of a diversified industry in Greenland.
A book for Greenlandic pupils
In collaboration with the Greenlandic publisher of teaching materials and historian Jens Heinrich, a new book on the societal aspects of raw material extraction is on the way. The target group for the book is Greenlandic secondary school pupils.
By participating in our ongoing projects, students gain access to a wider network of sources and more data. The project gains from the student's ideas and collection of useful data.
The students publish their results as part of their exams or thesis. An example can be seen here.
