Short Abstract:

The panel will explore co-production of knowledge across different typologies/topographies of mobility, considering e.g. why and how the moving body can foster environmental care and understanding, and how mobile methods can promote awareness supporting environmental transitions.

Long Abstract:

This panel will focus on walking-based tools used to raise awareness and responsibility for fragile environments past and present. The workshop has two core themes: sustainability and tactile human-environment interaction. We will focus in particular on challenges and possibilities in the meeting of historical/traditional uses of nature and current (post-Corona) trends for transforming attitudes and practices towards increased sustainability. Through an exploration of research methods, we draw attention to the effects of increased human impact on fragile local ecosystems, common to many public and nature spaces in the Nordic region. Mobile research methods (e.g. walking interviews, studying archives and maps in situ, citizen science projects relying on mobility) can be fruitfully employed to align transdisciplinary perspectives and collaboration for generating new understandings of the histories of place and of environment.

The panel will explore co-production of knowledge across different typologies/topographies of mobility, considering e.g. why and how the moving body can foster environmental care and understanding, and how mobile methods can promote awareness supporting environmental transitions.
