    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, 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.

    UTVÄRDERING AV LCA, LCC & MERVÄRDEN FÖR NYPRODUKTION I OFFENTLIG SEKTOR: En jämförelse mellan valet av trä och betong som stomsystem i konceptförskolor2022Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: In this project work, the purpose is to perform an LCA as well as an LCC on two concept preschools, one with a wooden frame and one with a concrete frame. The result from the LCA is going to highlight, which of the building frames have the lowest environmental impact. In addition to the environmental impact, the project work  is going to include indoor climate together with energy use to get a broader view of the building’s overall performance. Method: This project work is in collaboration with Futurum Fastigheter i Örebro AB, where the authors have been instructed to perform an LCA on two concept preschools. One preschool has a wooden frame and the other has a concrete frame. The objective is to find out which of the buildings has the largest environmental footprint. In addition to this, the authors have evaluated an LCC together with an additional value tool. There are many tools to analyze the consequences from an environmental as well as an economic perspective. The report includes an LCA, LCC and an additional value tool. Result: The results show that the impact on CO2e/m2 for Bettorp was lower than Silva. Furthermore, the comparison between both preschools illustrated that Bettorp had lower emissions in all greenhouse categories except for carbon storage. The additional value tool portrays positive values for each preschool, although they differ. Conclusion: With the help of the software "One Click LCA" and "Visualisering och kvantifiering av mervärden vid energieffektivisering i offentlig sektor", the questionnaire has been answered and they all point to the wooden frame having a less environmental impacts along with a lower social cost of coal. The additional value tool was answered with the help of three employees at Futurum Fastigheter i Örebro AB. One of the participants concluded that there was no difference with regard to additional value between the preschools. The other two participants agreed that the preschool with a wooden frame provided a higher additional value compared to the other preschool.

    Sveriges klimatpolitik är kontraproduktiv2021In: Aktuell Hållbarhet, ISSN ISSN 2002-4355Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Skogsbrukets återbetalningstid är betydligt längre än vad klimatmålet tillåter. Det visar ny forskning enligt Kjell Prytz, lektor i fysik vid Mälardalens Högskola och Harry Frank, f d forskningsdirektör ABB Corporate Research samt ledamot i Kungliga Vetenskapsakademien och Kungliga Ingenjörsvetenskapsakademien.

    Klimatarbetets fokus bör kompletteras med upptag i atmosfären2022In: Aktuell Hållbarhet, ISSN 2002-3200Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Enligt IPCC har klimatkrisen två orsaker: förlust av biomassa och fossil förbränning. Det är inte primärt utsläppen som skapar klimatkrisen utan det faktum att det finns ett av människan skapat överskott av växthusgaser som koldioxid i atmosfären. För att få bort koldioxid från atmosfären finns i dag endast en metod: att återställa den förlorade skogen. Den svenska klimatpolitiken behöver uppdateras för att hamna i samklang med EU:s klimatlag och IPCC:s vägledning, skriver tre medlemmar i Skydda skogen.

    Skogsindustrins skeva teser är en fara för Sverige2022In: Aktuell Hållbarhet, ISSN 2002-3200Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Skogsindustrins representant Peter Holmgrens analyser är behäftade med en rad faktafel och vetenskapliga brister som står i strid med både EU:s klimatpolitik och IPCC:s färdväg mot Parisavtalets mål. Inte desto mindre har just hans analys blivit till skogsindustrins huvudsakliga argumentering för sin påstådda klimatnytta. Svenska politiker borde nu kunna genomskåda dessa felaktigheter och därmed ändra kurs i sin klimatpolitik. Det skriver Kjell Prytz, Ida Sellstedt och David van der Spoel, medlemmar i Skydda Skogen, i en replik.

    Our burden - Carbondioxide theatre for climate action2019In: NORDES 2019: WHO CARES?, Espoo, Finland, 2019, 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).
