Poweful imaginaries of climate change take multiple forms and trajectories as they travel across the world of science, policy activism and art. In this research area, we ask how views on our changing climate gain ground, take form and ultimately shape how different actors make sense pf and act upon contemporary environmental concerns.We find dystopian narratives of environmental decline and catastrophism, but also positive imaginaries that invite a rethinking of links between nature and culture, economy and ecology, science and fiction, and expertise and citizenship. Within these narratives, we for example explore cultural drivers of angst and neglect, innovation, and climate action.
Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research, CSPR provide research in five areas. Here we present research in the field of Cultural expressions and sense-making.
