As Denmark's gift to Croatia on the occation of its accession into the EU, the Royal Danish Embassy in Zagreb has the honour to open the exhibition »Breaking the Ice – the human face of climate change«. The exhibition officially opens on Friday the 12th of July at 20:30 and will take in place in the Diocletian Cellars in Split.

The exhibition aims at providing the audicence with a better understanding of the need to find solutions to the challenges posed by climate change, and gives the audience an idea of how climate change is experienced by the people of Ilulissat. Focus is also on the Greenlandic language, as people in the films talk in their native tongue Greenlandic.

In North Greenland, the climate change is reality. In the recent decades, average temperatures in the Arctic have risen twice as fast as the rest of the world, and climate change is likely to accelerate further in the next decades. This will contribute to major environmental, social and economic change in Greenland.

The aim of the exhibition is to provide a better understanding of the need to find solutions to the challenges posed by climate change. In an interview study made in 2010 it was clear, that the population of North Greenland are convinced that the climate change and the abuse of natural resources poses the greatest danger for the future.
