How will a warmer climate affect our coasts and how much will the sea rise? And what happens to the society when the landscape is changing? Researchers at SLU and Lund University raise the questions in the exhibition: Vattnet kommer!
The exhibition Vattnet kommer! was first arranged last winter at the Form / Design Center in Malmö. The exhibition raises the question of rising sea levels and how it can affect our coasts. Behind the exhibition is an MSB-funded research project between the Department of Cultural Geography at Lund University and the Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management at SLU.
How we handle this change in a conversation between decision makers, planners, designers and the population affects whether we will perceive the changes only as a threat or if we can see them as obvious parts of a changing landscape.
The aim of the project is to find new ways to plan and design the physical environment, as regional and municipal planning is still fragmented and fragmentary.
The exhibition is open weekdays from 8:00 to 16:00
