The slogan will be "Join. Feel. Jump." and the mascot will be a seal, whose name will be decided by schoolchildren
FAIRBANKS – There’s still plenty of action in store at the 2014 Arctic Winter Games in Fairbanks, but athletes and organizers are already looking forward to the next games.
Thursday night, the host of the 2016 games unveiled their mascot and logo. In two years, the Arctic Winter Games move to Nuuk, Greenland.
Their slogan — “Join. Feel. Jump.”
“It’s very important to show our culture because we have something that is in common with the other contingents, but we also have something that is different and we need to show that. We need to make this a branding exercise for Greenland,” said Maliina Abelsen, general manager 2016 AWG-Greenland.
The 2016 mascot will be a seal. He hasn’t been named, yet. Schoolchildren in Greenland are working together to come up with a name.
