Welcome to the website for The Rough Guide to Zero-Carbon Skåne, a postdoctoral research project hosted by the Department of Political Science at Lund University, Sweden.

Sounds interesting! What’s it about?

Short answer: co-producing climate futures! The project aims to produce a tourist guide to a decarbonised Skåne County as it might be in 2045, by working with communities of practice and place to prototype new lifeways in a decarbonised sociotechnical milieu.

Long answer: you can read more about the project on the summary page, or by digging around in the process-documentation material that this website will also contain.

OK, who’s doing it?

The main investigators are Paul Graham Raven and Johannes Stripple. You can find out more about him, and anyone else who gets involved, on the personnel page.

Who gave you the money to do this, then?

The Rough Guide to Zero-Carbon Skåne is supported by a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action Individual Fellowship from the ERC’s Horizon2020 Programme, as well as a grant from the Swedish research council FORMAS. More details can be found on the funding page.

What have you produced so far?

Please take a look at the outputs and activities page, which will be kept up to date with conference appearances, publications, and other impactful activities.

What’s happening with the project at the moment?

You may want to look at the newsfeed page, unless you want the whole nine yards of social media updates, in which case you can follow the project on Twitter as @ZeroSkane.

Can you tell me about the ideas and methods you’re using, and/or the experience of running a project like this?

Sure, there’ll be a separate blog category devoted to more reflexive and analytical material. If you’re an old-school RSS feedreader head*, you can get all the updates from this website that way, too.

(* RSS is an open protocol that once ruled the web in the Golden Age of blogging; it still works, and it’s a hugely effective way of following a whole bunch of websites, if that’s a thing you want to do.)
