Greenland is vast, remote and insanely beautiful.
It is also one the most sparsely populated countries in the world, yet it is undergoing profound environmental, geopolitical and economic change.
Earlier this year, we invited a group of UK parliamentarians who were visiting Greenland to drop in on the newest office in our global network. It opened in 2015 in the capital city Nuuk, establishing WWF as the first global conservation organisation to have an office in Greenland.
James Gray MP, Chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for the Polar Regions, led this expedition, and he kindly shared his reflections with us.
