UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon visited Greenland on March 26 and 27, to get an up-close look at the consequences of climate change.

Ban spent time in the town of Uummannaq, a municipality of 1,200 people, north of the Arctic Circle. He also went to luissat, where he saw the luissat ice fjord, which has been designated a World Heritage site by the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).

“I hope that world leaders will come to the United Nations with their strong political will, determined will, to raise awareness of these issues and come with galvanised actions, which can happen on the ground,” said Ban.

This two-day visit comes six months before September’s Climate Summit in New York.
