Unique Greenlandic cultural landscape nominated for World Heritage

An enormous and unique cultural landscape in West Greenland is nominated as World Heritage. The Greenlandic minister of Cultural affairs, Education and Science, the Mayor of Qeqqeta Municipality and the Danish minister for Cultural Affairs has signed the application “Aasivissuit-Nipisat – Inuit Hunting Ground between the Inland Ice and the Sea” for UNESCO. This puts an end to an extensive and thorough preparation work carried out by researchers at Ilisimatusarfik, The University of Greenland and The Natural History Museum of Denmark at the University of Copenhagen.
