There are more than 100 000 protected nature areas in the world. The oldest is said to be a protected area in Sri Lanka, dating back to 200 bce. In Sweden, there are more than 5 000 nature reserves today, the oldest dating back to 1915.
Naturvårdsverket considers the formation of nature reserves as one important tool for protecting biodiversity, among a series of other tools such as national parks, animal- and plant protection areas, and biotope protection areas and more.
The need and use of nature protection areas and tools raises questions regarding conservation and the value of nature. Why does humanity require protecting nature? How do we understand the values we are protecting?
Often, the formation of these protections are contested where landowners and corporations may want to work the grounds, and conservationists and activists may want the grounds to be protected from exploitation. How do humans define protecting nature? How do we resolve opposing understandings of nature protection? How is nature protection discussed, unpacked and understood by the actors in Sweden, including indigenous people, the government, and corporations?

Work on a special issue for the Journal of Environmental Planning and Management has begun – 10 articles have been proposed and now being developed. This workshop provides space to explore their main contributions to our understanding of environmental communication in theory and practice.
Who would find this interesting? Everyone who is part of an author team that has proposed an article – and everyone who is just curious to learn more about some of the research going on in the programme, and beyond!

In this session, we aim to continue exploring creative and inspiring ways to share our work with environmental communication in order to reach broader audience and increase our impact. Departing from a brainstorming session earlier in June, we will dive deeper into 3-4 specific domains of creative environmental communication, such as creative writing, visual art works, gaming and play, virtual museums; and start to develop concrete strategies to move forward. This session will hopefully serve as a platform for us to come together, think and work creatively together beyond the work package boundaries.
Before the session, please answer this survey
Who would find this interesting? This session is open to anyone who is interested in co-developing creative outputs from our work within the Mistra EC programme.

In this session, we will discuss your insights, impressions, and reflections from WP5’s ugly nature selfies challenge. Through our research, we found that nature selfies on social media only ever highlight beautiful nature, but hide ‘ugly’ nature and human impact on the environment, such as litter, logging, or infrastructure. More information on the challenge can be found on our dedicated website or in this Facebook group—everyone is welcome to participate in this session! (And you’re welcome to have your lunch during the workshop, too.)
Who would find this interesting? Everyone who is interested in exploring together what it means to breach the unspoken norms of social media and self-(re)presentation; everyone is welcome, although it might help if you took and possibly shared some ugly nature selfies in advance
