    A trip to Greenland: Navigating The Arctic Waters

    A trip to Greenland: Navigating The Arctic Waters

    Unless you’re familiar with Greenland’s waters, it’s generally difficult to navigate through its arctic conditions. The climate, influence of the weather, vastness of the sea area and the ever-changing ice conditions mean that all shipping vessels – from fishing boats to cargo ships – need an experienced pilot onboard.
    In this episode of Satellite Stories we meet arctic navigator Søren Nuka Olsvig, to learn about the importance of real-time information via reliable internet connection at sea.

    The power of digital inclusion opens doors to online teaching and distance learning platforms previously unavailable in parts of Greenland.
    Anders Ogaard is a teacher at the Institute for Learning in Nuuk. He reveals the impact connectivity is having on his pupils’ lives - near and far, and on the wider opportunities the internet can offer Greenlandic culture.
