Marie's important task in Greenland





During her visit to Greenland, Princess Marie handed out diplomas to a group of happy young in Nuuk.

Pride and joy were key when Princess Marie handed out diplomas to 13 young people from Greenland, who for various reasons are not able to take part in traditional education.

The young people struggle each with diagnoses such as autism, ADHD or other mental disorders. And this type of conditions creates difficulty in the traditional education system.


Princess Marie in high spirits

Princess Marie is these days visiting Greenland, opening a conference on autism, there was also time to shed royal glamor to the ceremony, in addition to the recipients had also attracted parents and relatives of the young people.

- "It has been very nice to be here", said Princess Marie as she left the cultural center in Nuuk in glorious sunshine and corresponding mood.

Later on Thursday, the Princess visits the House of Hans Egede in Nuuk, the keynote speaker at the conference and in the evening attend a reception followed by dinner.

Awwww....look at that!  No kicking dogs.  No camera-whoring.  No rolling eyes at people who've come to shake her hand.  No ropes up to keep those pesky brown people away.  Go Marie!!!

Wait, who kicked dogs??!!


Fred, he kicked a sled dog, and later on justified it saying that these are not pets, but half-wild dogs that need to be treated like wild animals, when they act up or something very similar. He was interviewed by one of those ragmags when he was in Greenland years ago.



Thanks Pede.  He is gross and he and Mary deserve each other. No you don't baby sled dogs but you need to abuse them.

March 17
Princess Marie gave the opening speech at the Autismekonferencen 2017, which is held in Nuuk.
The Conference shall among others strengthen awareness of autism in Greenland and focus on actions that can support children and adults with autism. As Patron for National Autism, Princess Marie is visiting Greenland:



Greenland is a big country. An almost unbelievable country. When you travel here by plane and have the ability to look down and look at Greenland, in the frosty sunshine, yes, it's still great.

In many ways it is magnificent, but it's also a little scary, because so large elements reminds one though, how small you are. It reminds one of how much you need for communities, how good it is that there are others who need someone to share the experiences and knowledge with.

If you focus on the things that are around us, the diversity of fauna, and on the extreme climate, there are major differences between Greenland and the rest of the world. But if you look at the things we have in common - as humans - we have almost all the same challenges.  

In all places where people meet, they will find something to share, it can be a school, sport, hobby or games. But it can also be a work or a specific field that requires a certainl specialized knowledge.

People with autism, just like other people need to have an identity. Being part of a community helps them to develop and find their identity. It provides security and profits to be curious. When you are curious you discover - at one point - that you are good at something. When you are good at something you get recognition.

I have often met people with autism who beamed with confidence about the recognition it is to get a job, responsibility, or simply an identity. It is an amazing and touching experience!  

Last spring, a survey showed that only 1 in 10 people with autism who have a real job, the figure is much lower than for other disability groups. It is all too few! Especially when we know that many people with autism have unique abilities compared to stay focused, work systematic and routine and deliver the same high quality day after day, month after month.

They are qualities that many modern businesses can benefit from.

Some autistic people can stuff their brains as we do not understand are possible. But not all people have unique talents, some of them are just unique people who want to go to work and be independent.

It is extremely important for people with autism to find an activity that helps them to stay focused and to find peace.

When you have relatives with autism have an invisible bond with other parents and siblings in the same situation. You share something that fills a giant part in one's own life and that is very important for the future. Not just for those who have autism, but for the whole family and for the family network. You can talk to the other about the challenges autism gives the family - and know that you are understood.

This time it is Denmark that visit Greenland. But most often we meet when Greenlandic parents traveling to Denmark for help from very specialized kindergartens and schools. It is tremendous when families choose to move, to up root. It is a heavy burden on families having to start over with finding work and networking.

The autism conference has a comprehensive program from morning to evening. To share important knowledge about autism here from the pulpit for many hours. But it is also important - perhaps most important - to all who are here for the next 3 days, remember to network with each other and to share your experiences and knowledge. There are many solutions, options to focus efforts on helping and supporting each other.

And there's a comfort in the knowing that others also feel that autism can challenge, that others may have great difficulty in addressing the situation as well, but have come through it - an experience richer.

I hope that this conference will be the beginning of a time when we do things differently than we have done before. The beginning of a broader collaboration between different professionals, from professionals and parents and between autism specialists in Denmark and Greenland.
