It gathered a lot of the people who have worked on the collaborative project at the Oslo end. We wish we could have had everyone, and in particular all those in Gjoa Haven and the Kitikmeot who have worked so hard on this project, here with us! In the spirit of the project the event was streamed, so anyone anywhere would be able to at least digitally attend. The Canadian Ambassador to Norway, Arthur Wilczynski, kindly did the honours and declared the portal for opened.
