    Carbon theatre in public spaces: Using participatory theatre and co-designmethods in a museum for shaping lowcarbon lifestyles2019In: Life Cycle Management Conference 2019, Poznan, Polen, 2019, Vol. 9, article id 97Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the past ten years, the need for public spaces to deal with burning societal issues, such as climate change, has become even more important. Participatory theatre offers ways to meet the longing for shared forums by engaging large groups of people in exploring difficult social dilemmas. It can potentially empower participants to change their own situations and organizations. In a previous design research project Quantifying your carbon footprint, this gap was in focus. We will use the findings from the Quantifying carbon footprint project as an entry point and expand it with Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) on objects from the current museum collection and on daily life activities that have a carbon impact. The goal of the project is to explore and understand the climate and environmental impacts of lifestyles. The method used here are participatory theatre and co-design methods and pop-up exhibitions are used to engage young citizens in negotiating social norms and understanding their possible impact on CO2 emissions. The museum collections play a crucial role in the process of understanding how LCA calculations are related to mundane objects and reflecting on the temporality of social norms that are negotiated and re-negotiated through the way we handle products and objects in our everyday life. Developing new practices for museums involving participatory methods in order to engage young citizens in climate research. The results of the introductory meeting and study visit show that using the museum’s collection, the history and the value of things in the past centuries become clear and easier to reflect on compared to today’s unsustainable lifestyle – travelling and over consumption. Carbon Dioxide Theatre is an attempt to shape a shared space on a local level, in line with the priorities of the museum’s three years plan.

    LCA av konsertbesök – klimatanalys av Amasons turné2022Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The number of life music and concerts has increased during the recent years. The life concerts are attracting a large number of visitors that are travelling and drinking beer on the concerts. The scope of the project was to get an overview of the climate impact of a concert and a tour including transport and hotel nights of the band and the visitors, the lighting for the concert, and the drinks and clothing sold on the concert. The goal of the project was to find out how much climate impact could be reduced with changing the service at the concert, such as stop serving beer in a bottle, and the behaviour of the visitors, such as sustainable travelling. Within the project, the visitor’s behaviour on transport and hotel visits (guest nights) were gathered though a visitor’s survey, and the bands behaviour on transport and hotel visits were gathered through concerts and tour. The studied activities included in this study are drinking beer and other beverages, the lightning on stage, the transport and hotel nights for visitors and the band including equipment. Life cycle analysis (LCA) based data and method were used to measure the climate impact from the studied concert and tour. The results were compared with earlier concerts and tour (reference concert and tour). The results showed that the largest climate impacts come from transport of visitors and the band compared to a references concert. The electricity consumption in the concert hall was of minor impact since LED applications has been used mostly. Around 20% climate reduction could be gained though drinking beer (tank, bag in box) instead of drinking beer in bottles. The results for the drinks and the clothing sold on the concert show similar results. The results for hotel show little climate impact in general, since only few visitors stayed in hotels for the concert.

    “This community will grow” — little concern for future wildfires in a dry and increasingly hotter Swedish rural community2024In: Regional Environmental Change, ISSN 1436-3798, E-ISSN 1436-378X, Vol. 24, no 2, article id 69Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Increased risk of wildfires is often highlighted in media coverage of climate change in the Nordic countries. How an increased risk is reflected in the concerns and adaptive measures within the most likely affected communities is nevertheless not known. This study investigates concerns and adaptation to wildfires in a rural community in south-eastern Sweden. The comparatively dry study area has a history of frequent but often low-consequence wildfires and is projected to experience Sweden’s largest increase in severe fire weather towards 2100. Through narratives, this study elucidates potential wildfire concerns in this area and motivations behind adaptation measures. The narratives are compared to a physical causal network extracted from the literature on fires and their consequences in the region. Residents foresee an increased wildfire risk but do not consider it a threat to the future well-being of the community. Forest owners and homeowners express low commitment in preventive or adaptive measures. Instead, contrasting the reality of the twentieth century, the fire service is currently considered to be responsible for both preventing and suppressing fires. This attitude is attributed to the lack of severe implications from the generally well-managed fires in the region. Actions for prevention and adaptation seem triggered by media attention or experience from real high-consequence events occurring elsewhere, rather than local wildfire occurrence or climate change projections. © The Author(s) 2024.

    Guidelines for Green Electronics – Sustainability and Foresight: Introducing the concepts as a first step2022Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The society is transitioning towards a circular economy and the Digital Cellulose Center (DCC) that develops green electronics may play an important role in it. The research within the DCC focuses on the topic of digital cellulose, where cellulose is combined with electroactive material, making it possible to develop electrically active cellulose products that can communicate with the digital world while remaining sustainable. This could mean entirely new types of active packaging solutions, able to sense and adapt to their surroundings, or paper rolls able to store energy from solar cells or wind power [1]. This document offers guidance for the DCC stakeholders on the choice of sustainable materials for green electronics, focusing on the two life cycle phases of a product: • Raw materials • End-of-life Since the DCC green electronics are still in the development stage, a future scenario analysis has been applied in order to envision the possible future outcomes. The DCC green electronics have been explored in two opposite future scenarios: • Stuck in the Mud – A business-as-usual scenario, where the year 2045 is more or less the same as year 2022. • Circular Dawn – Where the circular economy has become a new normal and the whole society is thriving in a resource-efficient, circular and biobased economy. The guideline contains a sustainability checklist adapted to the needs of the DCC stakeholders for more informed decision-making and for being able to drive the development towards a circular economy, i. e. the future scenario Circular Dawn.

    Our burden - Carbondioxide theatre for climate action2019In: NORDES 2019: WHO CARES?, Espoo, Finland, 2019, Vol. 8, article id 150Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The biggest changes to the planet are made by humankind and action needs to be taken in order to guarantee a sustainable level of emissions for the planet (Rockström et al. 2009). In the project presented in this poster, we engage young citizens (from 15 to 20 years old), in critically reflecting on social norms and practices around climate goals and CO2 emissions, through participatory theatre methods. Only when those involved can get sufficient authority to determine and guide the research and the research agenda, can a project be truly participatory (Winschiers-Theophilus 2009). Participatory theatre offers ways to meet the longing for shared forums by engaging large groups of people in exploring difficult social dilemmas. It can potentially empower the young participants to change their own situations and organisations, as it is “likely to shake things into action or to “unfreeze” blocked situations ” (Shreyögg and Höpfl 2004).

    Nordic forest management towards climate change mitigation: time dynamic temperature change impacts of wood product systems including substitution effects2022In: European Journal of Forest Research, ISSN 1612-4669, E-ISSN 1612-4677, Vol. 141, p. 845-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Climate change mitigation trade-offs between increasing harvests to exploit substitution effects versus accumulating forest carbon sequestration complicate recommendations for climate beneficial forest management. Here, a time dynamic assessment ascertains climate change mitigation potential from different rotation forest management alternatives across three Swedish regions integrating the forest decision support system Heureka RegWise with a wood product model using life cycle assessment data. The objective is to increase understanding on the climate effects of varying the forest management. Across all regions, prolonging rotations by 20% leads on average to the largest additional net climate benefit until 2050 in both, saved emissions and temperature cooling, while decreasing harvests by 20% leads to the cumulatively largest net climate benefits past 2050. In contrast, increasing harvests or decreasing the rotation period accordingly provokes temporally alternating net emissions, or slight net emission, respectively, regardless of a changing market displacement factor. However, future forest calamities might compromise potential additional temperature cooling from forests, while substitution effects, despite probable prospective decreases, require additional thorough and time explicit assessments, to provide more robust policy consultation. © 2022, The Author(s).

    Climate Impact of Plant-based Meat Analogues: A Review of Life Cycle Assessments2023In: Sustainable Production and Consumption, ISSN 2352-5509, Vol. 36, p. 328-337Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The transition towards more plant-based diets is identified as an important measure for limiting dietary climate impact. Plant-based meat analogues (PBMAs) have been proposed as a viable lower carbon alternative to meat, and its market is rapidly growing globally. However, knowledge about the climate impact of PBMAs in relation to other foods is currently limited due to the challenge of comparing life cycle assessments (LCAs) using different methods. The aim of this study was to review the climate impact of PBMAs based on LCAs published up to 2021. Original LCA data were recalculated to harmonize differences in method choices among studies and presented as the climate impact of final products at factory gate. The median climate impact of PBMAs was estimated at 1.7 kg CO2 eq./kg of product with a more than fourfold variation in impact (0.5–2.4 kg CO2 eq./kg product). Climate impact per protein content of the final product varied from 0.4 to 1.2 kg CO2 eq./100 g protein with a median impact of 0.8 kg CO2 eq./100 g protein. Cultivation of raw materials and manufacturing were identified to be responsible for a large proportion of GHG emissions up to factory gate. However, the assessment of climate impact in the production chain was challenged by the level of detail of data provided. A transparent reporting strategy regarding the specific stages in the supply chain, method choices and product information is recommended to facilitate identification of hot spots to target for improved climate performance of future PBMAs and to enable accurate comparisons between studies. It could further be concluded that current scientific knowledge on the climate impact of PBMAs is based on a limited number of LCAs that often rely on a combination of secondary data and collected data at production scale or from pilot-scale production facilities. Future LCAs of PBMAs would benefit from additional assessments of commercial production using region- and site-specific data. © 2023 The Authors

    Building for a future climate - focus on moisture safety

    Scenarios currently predicted for Sweden’s future climate entail increased risks of moisture damage in our buildings if we do not adapt them to such changes. It is especially important to consider the risks associated with the future climate in regard to new construction and renovations to avoid costly additions and alterations in the future.

    This project presents some examples of adaptations available today; they provide an insight into the possible means of adapting properties currently available to the construction and property sector. There is also considerable potential for innovation and further development in the ways buildings can be adapted and the project highlights some areas where this will probably be necessary.

    The adaptations addressed in this preliminary study have been grouped into the areas flooding, increased temperature, humidity and driving rain. The conclusion is that the construction sector has advanced to different extents within the three areas of adaptation addressed by this preliminary study, and that potential remains for further adaptations in each of these areas.

    • In the case of flooding, which is also the most prominent area and where events clearly show the need for adaptation, there is often an awareness of the problem, and there are examples of technical measures that can be taken. However, it is unclear whether these measures have been put into practice to a sufficient extent. Here too, there is likely to be a potential for further development of solutions to improve moisture safety in buildings.
    • As for temperature and humidity, we note that the construction sector already faces challenges in the construction of moisture safe buildings and the sector is working to solve problem areas such as cold attics, foundations ventilated by outdoor air and parts of buildings where moisture has been built, or leaked, in. Temperature increases lead to more favourable conditions for microbial growth to develop. Furthermore, if the building is cooled in part or throughout, relative humidity will increase in the cold structures, which will also encourage microbial growth. If buildings are to be proofed against humidity and temperature in the future, it is important that the construction sector has climate data for scenarios for which the moisture safety of buildings can be planned. This climate data is not currently available in the simulation software used on the market.
    • In the case of measures against driving rain, the industry already displays a need to increase its knowledge of calculations and design in to reduce the risk of water penetration. There is a need for a systematic approach to all parts of a building’s exterior. There is currently room for improvement in this area as there are examples of problems with water penetration in conjunction with torrential rain, and even more so when combined with strong winds. The examples are often due to leaks at connections, joints and penetrations through a building’s exterior.
