In connection with Future Greenland 2022, Greenland Business Association awards a prize to the best input on how we in Greenland can create sustainable growth and achieve higher economic independence.

You pick your own topic, as long as it is relevant to the theme "sustainable growth and economic independence." If you need inspiration, possible topics can be business development, globalization, education, demography, public administration, or sustainability.
