Across the Davis Strait in Greenland, Liz Cooper, a PHD student at Copenhagen Business School, is looking for volunteers to contribute to her studies.
In partnership with Visit Greenland and the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators, Liz is looking to define sustainable tourism as it exists in Greenland now and map a way forward. Liz’s research draws on a balance of visitor, residents, and industry professional perspectives.
If you’ve travelled to Greenland with us, or plan to, Liz would love to hear from you. The survey is only a few questions and should take just five minutes to complete.
