Content on Arctic Winter Games 2016’s official Facebook and Instagram profiles are mainly produced by school children from Nuuk International Free School (NIF). An important part of Arctic Winter Games 2016 is to engage of all Greenlandic society in the event, and having the school children volunteering as social media reporters is one of the many examples of that.
