    A change of just a few degrees: The possibilities and challenges of local American climate mitigation2015In: Community governance and citizen driven initiatives in climate change mitigation / [ed] Jens Hoff, Quentin Gausset, Routledge, 2015, p. 173-193Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter gives a picture of the central challenges to climate mitigation in the US from a human ecological perspective and it also examines the idea of the dramatic consequences of a slightly raised global temperature. To climate activists, many challenges remain. Since the beginning of the twentieth century, cheap energy and cheap land have made car dependency and thus the oil dependency physically and economically viable in the US. The country's diverse political structure, with its traditionally strong focus on local self-control, is simultaneously an obstacle to and a possibility for climate mitigation. Society is comprised of all the structures organised by humans, it is where people interact and where natural resources are transformed and reproduced to be made available and useful to humans. Cooperation is needed to make physical planning efficient and daily transportation more environmentally friendly, not to mention the critical need for an enhanced public transportation system.

    Abstract [en]

    This chapter is an historical overview of the debate and politics regarding the forestry technique "clear-cutting" in Sweden. It was presented by radical young foresters in the last years of the 19th century, but came to its' hayday in the mid-20th century. Clearcutting was the modern way of harvesting timber: Big-scale, efficient, mechanised. In the 1970ies, clear-cutting met its' protesters among environmentalists, and was heavily questioned, even though it still is the dominating harvesting method in the first years of the 21st century. The one argument that actually influenced the method a little was formed upon the basis of the value of biological diversity, which, according to environmentalists, was threatened by the modern forestry regime.

    Det urbana landskapet2010Conference proceedings (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Cities are growing all over the world. The UN has reported that since 2008, more than half of the world population live in cities. A majority of the people of the future will experience and remember the urban environment as their home, not to say their home landscape. What will such a change mean to future knowledge about - and love for - nature? The report gives a number of examples on how to manage biodiversity in cities, on how to stimulate and protect biological diversity in cities and how to enhance the ecosystem services that will be increasingly important for our survival in the futures. With several outlooks to international arenas (in English) it takes its departure in the conditions of Stockholm, known as one of the greenest capitals of the world.

    Abstract [en]

    What is outdoor education actually about? In Sweden, outdoor recreation has taken it's form since a century, focusing on pristine nature, exercise and individual experiences of a landscape and species in a certain, sporty way. This popular presentation of a study, though, shows that extra-Scandinavian immigrants often express a longing for the experience of nature, but that their cultural "schema" for how to encounter nature may be very different. Outdoor recreation habits, eating routines, exercise, social relations and choice of landscape in Swedish outdoor recreation habits are discussed from a multicultural angle.

    Ekologisk läskunnighet och naturrelationernas abstraktion i Antropocen2016In: Kulturella perspektiv - Svensk etnologisk tidskrift, ISSN 1102-7908, no 1, p. 19-20Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    For the longer part of humanity’s history, knowledge about nature has been sensual, physical and concrete. Language has reflected a refined and direct relation to living surroundings. With the emergence of modernity, and urbanisation, a more abstract and general relation to nature was introduced. As common schooling started in Sweden, in the 1840s, this more abstract relation to nature was introduced to, and taught to children. Even pedagogy went “indoors”, focusing on naming things from a scientific point of view. This abstraction, though, still provided children with some kind of language to denote species and specifics in nature. With the introduction of reform pedagogy, in the 1970s and 80s, by-heart-knowledge was no longer prioritised. Today, we face an increasing ecological illiteracy among children and youngsters. The illiteracy is verbal, i.e. children do not know names for things they see in nature, but also physical. Many children are reported not to be able to function physically in an outdoors environment. The author asks what consequences this development has in the long run. Is a total abstraction from nature, a complete urbanisation, the consequence of living in the antropocene? And what does it do to our existence?

    Gå ut min själ. Forskningsöversikt om hälsoeffekter av utevistelse i närnatur.2008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This research review presents and discusses research on relations between health, outdoor recreation and close-by nature. Primarily there is a focus on Swedish research. The review starts with a short background on ideas of the recreative and health-bringing qualities of nature. Problems of causality with judging relations on the key factors are discussed, including a "positive" or "negative" circle regarding fitness habits, the situation of the residence, public access to close-by nature and habits of outdoor recreation. Research on the importance of factors such as local identity and integration are referred to, as is research on connections between physical and mental health, stress and physical activity. How to plan and organise close-by nature to stimulate and optimise its use for outdoor recreation is discussed, as well as methods to study such characteristics. A number of obstacles for outdoor recreation are presented: physical, mental and social. Finally, theories on the value of biological diversity are discussed, and theories about the suggested importance of basic popular knowledge of species and understanding of ecological processes, so-called ecological literacy. To sum up, relations between physical health, access to high quality close-by nature and the meaning of those factors for a future sustainable society are discussed.

    How many thick television sets can there be in the world? Recycling workers and customers reflect on changing roles, recycling routines and resource flows2015In: Community Governance and Citizen-Driven Initiatives in Climate Change Mitigation / [ed] Jens Hoff, Quentin Gausset, Routledge, 2015, p. 194-214Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter describes how waste handling is organised at recycling stations. Its main focus is to analyse the new professional role of recycling workers, a role that is not only technical, but highly social. It also provides a glimpse into how citizens perceive the act of visiting recycling stations. In industrial society, materials come into the system in large part as virgin raw materials. A recycling station is in all its aspects the opposite of a factory it is an anti-factory, a dis-assembly line. Once the waste is sorted, companies buy the recycled material and reuse, recycle or refine the products in a number of ways. The recycling workers produce value, but they also produce order. The order is of two kinds, the first being material order the clean bins. The second is the social order the citizen's responsibility and the level of education of the customers on the stations.

    La colonie interne du Norrland suédois: modèle d'une périphérie extractive?2007In: Espace Politique, ISSN 1958-5500, no 2, p. 83-95Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article deals with the historical and current socio-economic situation of the northern interior of Sweden. Its forestal resources,hydro-energy and minerals have all been heavily extracted to the benefit of the Swedish state, forming a basis for the development of Sweden as a highly modernised wellfare-state. The environmental, cultural and economic costs for the Norrland regions are here analysed from the perspective of world system theory, seeing accumulation of wealth in central regions as dependent on the deprivation of geographical and economic peripheries. Today, the high-days of the extraction era are over, and researchers, politicians and civilians all suggest different solutions.

    Abstract [en]

    The use of phenoxy acids as herbicides and DDT as pesticide was initially concidered risk free in Swedish 1970-ies forestry. Eventually, usage of chemicals was found to be hazardous to forestry workers. Later on, the concept of environmental risk was introduced in the debate and during a time-span of ten years, the issue was fiercely debated among foresters, forest workers and environmentalist, simultaneously as the role of science and of authorities changed from a reassuring one to one of risk management and limitation.

    Varbölden som sprack: Uppropen och skammen2017In: Mooria, no 171211Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The #metoo-movement starting in the American film business in October 2017, followed suit among Swedish professional groups. After having stated that sexual harassment and violence was prevalent against women in almost all professional fields in Sweden, counting itself to be one of the most gender equal countries in the world, the turn came to private life. A Facebook group with 57 000 women bore witness about domestic violence, sexual harassments in schools and families, paedophilic abuse, and recurrent group rape, all legal crimes very seldom reported to, or handled by, the law system. This article is an essay, an attempt, to understand the religious and historical roots of gender inequality and shame, one of the central forces in the possibility for this low-intense war against women taking place in the midst of our society.

    Conspicuous conservation: The green clothing of Swedish environmentalists2017In: International Journal of Fashion Studies, ISSN 2051-7106, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 7-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Focusing on the notion of 'green clothing', this article shows how a sartorial aesthetic informs group cohesion for environmentalist activists. Using qualitative data gathered through open-ended questions posted on the Field Biologists's Facebook group, which is no longer active, the article explores subjects' memories and opinions on clothing and style covering the period from the late 1960s to the present. The article mixes this method with historical textual analysis of the tradition of frugality and asceticism back to nineteenth-century forerunners. This mixed method approach provides rich material on counter-consumerist aesthetics in both cultural and - political contexts within a historical framework. Theoretically, the article revises the classic notion of clothes as a cultural membrane between body and society, showing how a third element - nature - works in certain ideological frames to dissolve that membrane between body and society. In this way, clothes are worn in order to demonstrate harmony between the wearer's body and the environment. This dissolution of culture into 'nature' serves the collective pursuit of political community espoused by the Field Biologists. Through tracing a number of 'vestemes' (units of sartorial semiotics), this article decodes an identity formed around nature as opposed to culture; the old as opposed to the new; second-as opposed to first-hand; as well as around a complex relationship with gender.

    Between exploration and tourism: Carl Irminger's Iceland travel diary 18262021In: Polar Record, ISSN 0032-2474, E-ISSN 1475-3057, Vol. 57, article id e2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the spring of 1826, the young Danish naval officer Carl Irminger and two of his friends sailed with a cargo ship from Copenhagen to Iceland to stay there during the summer. This article is based on Irminger's unpublished travel diary. Irminger and his friends blended in with the local elite, which provided them with equipment and contacts to travel. Their journeys out from Reykjavik were adventurous and depended on local guides and the hospitality of residents along the way. The tales of hardships during the travels, combined with contacts established during the trip, became important credentials in Irminger's future career. He was hired as an adjutant to the Danish prince, and the narrative of his summer in Iceland ignited a royal expedition there in 1834, of which Irminger was to be the trip leader. Irminger's diary reflects a broader shift from Enlightenment exploration reporting into Romantic travel writing, with more emotional and aesthetic emphasis. His journey was a forerunner of the nature tourism that eventually was to sprout in Iceland.

    Contested construction of nature for city fringe outdoor recreation in southern Sweden: The Arrie case2008In: Urban Forestry & Urban Greening, ISSN 1618-8667, E-ISSN 1610-8167, Vol. 4, no 7, p. 171-182Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article deals with the process of change from industrial land to recreational area on a 60 ha piece of land 12 km southeast of Malmö, southern Sweden, called Lake Arrie. The area is an abandoned gravel quarry in the midst of an agricultural landscape. We present a short background and the current situation in Arrie, setting out to capture the tendencies of the contemporary construction of nature for outdoor recreation. We then move on to discuss the salutogenic aspects of outdoor recreation, and how these can be traced in the actual landscape at Arrie. Furthermore, we open the discussion on diversity as a cherished post-modern ideal both in nature and culture. Different interests and ideologies may cause conflicts in the planning process. To capture the multitude of voices emanating among stakeholders, the process to extract local opinions through participatory processes is presented. The social and political categorisation of an area reflects the needs of a changing society. In the early industrial era, the area was an enclave of industrial ground in a completely rural setting. In the post-industrial era, it turned into a ‘wasteland’, open for nature to recolonise. This type of landscape is difficult to categorise, being an ‘inbetween-land’, neither nature nor culture, perceived as ephemeral and inferior. At the same time, the city sprawled closer, with the semi-urban populations’ need for outdoor recreation. In future, the former industrial ground will be perceived as an enclave of nature in an urban setting. When the former products of the area responded to the industrial need for gravel and limestone, the contemporary ‘products’ respond to emotional needs.

    Det gröna finrummet: etnicitet, friluftsliv och naturumgängets urbanisering2014Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    "The green parlour" is the result of a research project investigating the outdoor recreation habits and nature relations of immigrants in Sweden, with a focus on Malmö. It starts out with analyzing the traditional "Swedish" way of relating to nature, suggesting that the outdoor recreation so central to Swedish national identity is the result of modernization and urbanization. It also analyses the consequences of the migration process when it comes to relating to, orientate oneself and using nature, as an arena for both utility, i.e. picking berries, fishing etc, but also for purely recreational habits. The authors have interviewed immigrants in parks, green areas and allotment gardens all around Malmö, as well as newly arrived immigrants taking part in Swedish classes, and excursion organized to "present" Swedish nature and Swedish nature relations to immigrants. A central point in the book is that it is not ethnicity as such that forms our nature relations, but rather urbanization and modernization. Another central point is that the urbanization of the nature relations leads to a decline in ecological literacy, not among immigrants per se, but among everybody as urbanization and urbanity becomes our "second nature".

    Inne och ute i Malmö: Studier av urbana förändringsprocesser2008Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This anthology is a result of current research on processes of change in an urban setting. During the last century, Malmö in Southern Sweden has changed from a port for agricultural trade and fishing, to a highly modern, heavy industrialised city, through a severe depression and into an expanding postdindustrial, international town. This rapid change has been a challenge in all the fields that are presented in the book: the identity of the city and its' citizens, the socioeconomic facts, as expressed within the work sector and the housing sector, the ecological effects of former and contemporary green areas, the actual movements and use patterns of citizens in their everyday life, and how the city reshapes its' self reflection on a globalised market. The chapters are written by researchers in the Urban Studies Researcher Network, based on Malmö University, though some colleagues work at Lund University.

    Kulturkrock med konsekvenser2011In: SULF-tidningen, no 4Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    A debating article regarding the fact that humanistic and social science researchers often are assessed regarding rules of publication that are common among natural scientists. For example, the order of authors among social scientists are often alphabetical, while it among medical researcher and others, are organised according to a number of principles. This kind of cultural clashes must be openly discussed among researchers, so that one group will not be judged through the eyes of other standards.

    Through Internet and Friends: Translation of Air Pollution Research in Malmö Municipality, Sweden2020In: International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, ISSN 1661-7827, E-ISSN 1660-4601, Vol. 17, no 12, article id E4214Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Air pollution is estimated to cause more than 7000 deaths annually in Sweden alone. To reduce the impact of air pollution and to plan and build sustainable cities, it is vital that research is translated into efficient decisions and practice. However, how do civil servants in a municipality access research results? How do they normally find relevant information, and what obstacles are there to accessing and applying research results? As part of the collaborative and transdisciplinary research project Air Pollution Research in Local Environmental Planning (ARIEL), these questions were explored through interviews and seminars with civil servants within the Malmö Municipality Environmental Office. We found that the civil servants generally have proficiency in processing research results, but often do not use such results as part of their everyday decision making and practices. Instead, the data and measurements used are mostly produced case-by-case within the municipal sector itself. Information about best practices is also collected via a number of knowledge access practices, involving the Internet or social networks within other municipalities. Lack of time, paywalls, and the insufficient applicability of research hinder the dissemination of up-to-date results. This slows down the process whereby research, funded by tax-money, can be put to best practice in the effort to create healthy and sustainable cities.

    Estimated health benefits of exhaust free transport in the city of Malmö, Southern Sweden2018In: Environment International, ISSN 0160-4120, E-ISSN 1873-6750, Vol. 118, p. 78-85Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Air pollution is responsible for one in eight premature deaths worldwide, and thereby a major threat to human health. Health impact assessments of hypothetic changes in air pollution concentrations can be used as a mean of assessing the health impacts of policy, plans and projects, and support decision-makers in choices to prevent disease. The aim of this study was to estimate health impacts attributable to a hypothetical decrease in air pollution concentrations in the city of Malmö in Southern Sweden corresponding to a policy on-road transportations without tail-pipe emissions in the municipality. We used air pollution data modelled for each of the 326,092 inhabitants in Malmö by a Gaussian dispersion model combined with an emission database with >40,000 sources. The dispersion model calculates Nitrogen Oxides (NO) (later transformed into Nitrogen Dioxide (NO)) and particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter < 2.5 μg/m (PM) with high spatial and temporal resolution (85 m and 1 h, respectively). The average individual reduction was 5.1 (ranging from 0.6 to 11.8) μg/m in NO which would prevent 55 (2% of all deaths) to 93 (4%) deaths annually, depending on dose-response function used. Furthermore, we estimate that the NO reduction would result in 21 (6%) fewer cases of incident asthma in children, 95 (10%) fewer children with bronchitis every year, 30 (1%) fewer hospital admissions for respiratory disease, 87(4%) fewer dementia cases, and 11(11%) fewer cases of preeclampsia every year. The average reduction in PM of 0.6 (ranging from 0.1 till 1.7) μg/m would mean that 2729 (0.3%) work days would not be lost due to sick-days and that there would be 16,472 fewer restricted activity days (0.3%) that year had all on-road transportations been without tail-pipe emissions. Even though the estimates are sensitive to the dose-response functions used and to exposure misclassification errors, even the most conservative estimate of the number of prevented deaths is 7 times larger than the annual traffic fatalities in Malmö, indicating a substantial possibility to reduce the health burden attributed to tail-pipe emissions in the study area.

    Abstract [en]

    This synthesis is an attempt to overview research on the health effects of childrens outdoor life and outdoor activities. The four resarchers have given their perspective: Mårtensson writes on childrens play and urban planning. Lisberg Jensen gives a human-ecological perspective and tries to sort out the arguments for the benefits of childrens outdoor play. Söderström, as a medical doctor, gives examples of both benefits and negative consequences of childrens outdoors activities. Öhman provides a pedagogical perspective and discusses the benefits of nature and learning. The authors have also produced a common introduction and synthesis, where they discuss this complex subject.

    "I brought a hazelnut from Macedonia": Cultural and biological diversity in a globalizing world2009In: Transcending Boundaries: Environmental histories from the Öresund region, Malmö University , 2009, p. 127-141Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article deals with the cultural parallelism between biological and cultural diversity as manifested in allotment garden areas in Malmö. Applying an historical perspective, we argue that the mobility of species is almost as old as human history. Whenever new species are introduced, as when cultural traits meet, differences may be welcomed and introduced in the already existing context, just as they may be shunned, hated and persecuted. Introducing new species may be an efficient way of colonizing land, as shown by Alfred W. Crosby. In an increasingly globalized world, people seem to bring with them their old plants, and they exchange varieties and species with each other. In a multicultural city like Malmö, this is practised among the many allotment gardeners from all over the world. Sometimes it enhances contact and integration, and sometimes cultural practices and species comes to symbolize difference, contact with the country of origin or even ethnic identity. The article starts with a general overview of the history of migration and migrating species. Then we introduce the reader to the ideas of biological and cultural diversity and the discursive parallels between them. After that, we present some of our empirical data from interviews with allotment gardeners of different ethnic origin all over Malmö. Finally, we critically discuss how cultural and biological diversity as sometimes different but sometimes closely connected sets of associations are used in official discourse on cultural and biological change. Malmö has a long history of multiculturalism. Already in medieval times, Malmö was a dynamic centre of fishing and trade for people from all over the Baltic region. Germans, Poles, Danes and Swedes met and handled economic, religious and political matters on the sandy beach in the growing city. Today, Malmö is one of the most multicultural cities in Sweden, which can easily be observed in parks and allotment gardens, where people of different origins engage in leisure activities or in small-scale cultivation.

    Outdoor Office Work: An Interactive Research Project Showing the Way Out2021In: Frontiers in Psychology, E-ISSN 1664-1078, Vol. 12, article id 636091Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The physical boundaries of office work have become increasingly flexible. Work is conducted at multiple locations outside the office, such as at clients' premises, at home, in cafés, or when traveling. However, the boundary between indoor and outdoor environment seems to be strong and normative regarding how office work is performed. The aim of this study was to explore how office work may be conducted outdoors, understanding how it is being experienced by office employees and identifying its contextual preconditions. Based on a two-year interactive research project, the study was conducted together with a Swedish municipality. Fifty-eight participants engaged in the collaborative learning process, including 40 half-day workshops and reflective group discussions, co-interviews, and participants' independent experimentation of bringing work activities outdoors. Data was collected via interviews, group discussions and a custom-made mobile application. The results showed that a wide range of work activities could be done outdoors, both individually and in collaboration with others. Outdoor work activities were associated with many positive experiences by contributing to a sense of well-being, recovery, autonomy, enhanced cognition, better communication, and social relations, but also with feelings of guilt and illegitimacy. Conditions of importance for outdoor office work to happen and function well were found in the physical environment, where proximity to urban greenspaces stood out as important, but also in the sociocultural and organizational domains. Of crucial importance was managers' attitudes, as well as the overall organizational culture on this idea of bringing office work outdoors. To conclude, if working life is to benefit from outdoor office work, leaders, urban planners and policymakers need to collaborate and show the way out.
