Secretary-General Visits Greenland to See Impact of Climate Change
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon travelled to Greenland to see first-hand the impacts of climate change. Together with the Prime Ministers of Denmark and Greenland, he visited the town of Uummannaq, where they hoisted flags, observed a prayer ceremony in a local church, went dog sledding; went fishing, toured a whaling museum; and met with indigenous people.
