Environmental Humanities Collaboratory
In a world where the effects of climate change are increasingly evident, nature can no longer be regarded as separate from culture. We are in a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene, characterised by comprehensive human impact on Earth and its geological development.

Call for a national programme for environmental humanities research. Environmental humanities are a rapidly growing field. They can yield new standpoints and solutions to central environmental problems and ways of achieving sustainable development of society. The Swedish research community has major potential to play a prominent part in this development, but existing research and educational environments need to be coordinated and new collaborative structures created.
- Finansiering: Mistra and Formas
Mistra invites Swedish research groups to submit programme proposals on the theme of sustainable development in the Arctic Regions. The purpose of the programme is twofold: to expand knowledge of the region’s distinctive prospects of long-term sustainable development, and to contribute to adequate and effective application of research results in policy processes relating to development in the Arctic.
