Personal profile

Research

My doctoral project engages with civic response to climate change. More specifically I look at alternative farming practices i.e. permaculture as a form of climate activism. My point of departure is a folkhögskola, located in Southern Sweden. From here I follow the activsts (teachers and participants) in their engagement with permaculture in- and outside the folkhögskola. Hereby following the aim to understand how the activists through everyday practices and entanglements with human and other-than-human beings enact a form of climate activism where concepts such as care, temporality and imagination play a pivotal role. 

With this project I hope to contribute with a greater understanding of civic response to climate change by among other things looking at rationales and understandings, practices and entanglements.
