Education has always led to revolutions in science, technology, and the arts - so why not the environment? By providing paths for students to learn about renewable energy, low-carbon technology, and sustainable living, we are enabling younger generations to choose how they develop, as David Attenborough explains:
“Young people: They care. They know that this is the world that they're going to grow up in, that they're going to spend the rest of their lives in. But, I think it's more idealistic than that. They actually believe that humanity, human species, has no right to destroy and despoil regardless.”
The seminar collaboration looks at what these goals actually mean here in Norway for you and me. How we relate to plants, elements and what affects and relations define our actions and works w materials of visible and invisible nature
Waterworld infrastructures, plants and planetary repercussions


The MA seminar and collaboration looks at what these goals actually mean here in Norway for us. How we relate to plants, elements and what affects and relations define our actions and works w materials of visible and invisible nature
Waterworld infrastructures, plants and planetary repercussions

Which materials and qualities define power structures in our society? What makes us function as a species? The fact that we can define colours? Are we special because we care about community and the commons? Empathy? Windpower in the north of Norway as a progress? Power over space?

Exercise 1:  The secret power of plants
Exercise 2: the internet of mushrooms
Exercise 3: Who has the power to make you wait
Exercise 4: Power oft he everyday: Where is the agency? Sidewalk chicken and the dead fish: why do women need to be trained to have a strong handshake and men sit with open legs?
