Parajumpers has collaborated with the photographer Michael, aka Bluemoonthecrew, who, together with his team, travelled to Greenland to film and photograph the lives of Inuit in the Arctic Circle. Equipped with the Polar Gear family from the FW21 collection, the team listened to the story of Julius, a local, who walked them through everyday life on the icy island.

Ebba visited the village of Tiniteqilaaq in the south of Greenland, where Julius and his fellow villagers shared their direct experiences with the effects of climate change and what this means in their everyday life.
"People in the most remote areas of the world, tend to have the smallest environmental footprint. Yet, the same people are experiencing the biggest effects of climate change."
Due to the change in the environment, the Inuit hunting and fishing practices also need to change, as well as the knowledge deriving from a centuries-old relationship with the climate, the ice, the snow and, therefore, the animals.

Ebba wears Kym, Warm Up, a mix of down filling and honey-comb fleece sleeves, perfect to stay warm even on the move.

"Greenlanders have always been adaptable. They have to be, otherwise they wouldn’t have been able to survive this long. But nowadays, as humans for the first time in history are the ones forcing that change, it is not a matter of natural adaption anymore."

Not only lessons to learn and stories to listen to but also moments of calmness and peace have made this voyage unique – the perfect opportunity to admire the beauty of icy landscapes and colourful Greenlandic houses.
We spent time with Julius and his fellow villagers to try and understand how the small, indigenous settlements in Greenland have already been forced to adapt. “What will happen as the glaciers keep melting? And what can we learn from their relationship with nature?" These are the questions that Ebba, Michael and Andreas are asking.

" Centuries of history and traditions become irrelevant with such a rapid and radical change. It's true that Greenlanders have always adapted naturally to changes, thus allowing them to survive on this remote island. But will this be sufficient in the future?"

"Knowledge of the past. One of the most important legacies for the Inuit. What happens to them when that old, valuable knowledge is lost to climate change and global industries force them to live differently? When the stories that traditionally are passed down from generation to generation, become irrelevant?"
For these people, hunting and fishing have always been their means of harvesting food. Since animals need to migrate to find the necessary conditions for survival, the Inuit hunting grounds become more and more difficult to reach. Dog sleds are often replaced by small boats, but not all territories can be reached by this method of transport.

Seeing and understanding the close bond these people have with hunting and food gives us the opportunity of learning an important lesson on how they live in symbiosis with nature and animals, and how important this is for our planet's survival.
Michael, Ebba and Andreas went to Greenland to learn and witness what is happening in a remote part of the world where the population depends so much on nature. The most precious lesson we have learned is that we must never take more than we need.
