    Miljökollaps eller hållbar framtid?: Hur gymnasieungdomar uttrycker sig om miljöfrågor2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates how young people in upper secondary school express them-selves about environmental issues. The aim of the study is to analyse how expres-sions about the environment can relate to policies of the concept of Education for Sustainable Development, ESD. The study put forward a view of environmental issues also being societal issues. Using a qualitative method of participatory model-ling, partakers creatively visualize their discussions in two workshop-assignments about either consumption or the future in the year 2050 in groups. Young peoples´ expressions about environmental issues can be described in accordance with two-parted ways of thinking about the environment and humanity, either as loosely or firmly connected. Not only do the two-parted ways of thinking apply to relation-ships between the environment and humanity, they are also used in describing a two-parted future trajectory towards either environmental collapse or sustainable futures. Moreover, ways of handling environmental issues are described as two-parted be-tween societal large-scale arrangements and individual efforts. Young people in the study express that they search for “right” things to do in order to reach a sustainable future. While not finding those prescribed solutions fulfilling or feasible either in education, or in society, feelings of powerlessness and hopelessness arise. Participants suggest there is one way to handle environmental issues and evade environmental collapse, which is to urgently turn negative trends into positive ones. Training young people in systemic and complicated ways of thinking open up for feelings of hope and may serve as empowerment in their comprehension of how they can live in the world today. The design, performance and discussions rendered by the study is first and foremost to be seen as a contribution to how young people in upper secondary school can be given time and space to participate in both cognitive and emotional meaning-making processes about environmental issues as societal issues.

    Gymnasieelevers presentationer av relationer mellan miljö och människor – en studie om utbildning för hållbar utveckling2014Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates how upper secondary school students constitute relations between the environment and humanity. The aim of the study is to analyse relations that emerge between and within the Earth´s major systems (humanity included) and how these relations are composed when students are faced with a fictional decision of consuming a pair of jeans.                       

    Using workshop as a data collection method, students creatively visualize their discussions through participatory modelling in groups. The results of the study are based on the analyses of the concluding presentations of the completed models.

    The results show difficulties in submitting relations between the three dimensions of the concept of sustainable development together with a dualistic worldview, indicating a lack of complexity in the presentations. Therefore, a gap can be identified between the empirical results and the aims of education for sustainable development (ESD) that, according to the Ministry of Education and Research, should be a part of Swedish upper secondary education. In addition, a gap between the steering documents for the Swedish upper secondary schools and the UNESCO guidelines on ESD is revealed, consisting of the latter more distinctly promoting systems thinking and embracing pluralism.                                                                 

    Three national programmes are represented in the study; social science, science and economics. Differences between the three are established. Groups with a focus on social science present complexity to higher extent than groups on science orientation. Groups with a focus on economics present least complexity in their presentations.

    Hållbar utveckling och resiliens: En begreppsfördjupning2012Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Hållbar utveckling och resiliens är två begrepp som är betydelsefulla i utvecklingsfrågor i nationell och internationell kontext. I artikeln jämförs de båda begreppen utifrån, historik, semantik, olika perspektiv på begreppen, liksom kritik mot dessa. Likheterna mellan de två är stora och båda syftar till ett transformerat samhälle med tätare samverkan mellan samhälle och natur, eller mellan social och ekologiska system. Begreppen samverkar bland annat inom världssamfundet, i form av olika dokument från FN, vilket gör att resiliens har en given plats i utbildning för hållbar utveckling (ESD).

    Serviceresandet i Bodens kommun efter byggandet av Sunderby sjukhus2001Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den 1 september 1999 togs Sunderby sjukhus i Norrbottens län i bruk. Sjukhuset lokaliserades mellan Boden och Luleå efter en lång debattperiod och politiska kompromisser. Beslutet gör att invånare i både Boden och Luleå får längre att resa för att få den specialiserade vård som sjukhuset erbjuder.Med hjälp av en enkätundersökning under november månad år 2000, som utfördes i Boden tätort undersöktes om bodensarnas serviceresande efter livsmedel och vård har ändrats sedan byggandet av Sunderby sjukhus. Enkäten ställer också frågor om lokaltrafiken i Boden och länstrafiken i Norrbotten. Den behandlar också det totala serviceresandet i Boden tätort. En teoretisk diskussion om handel, vårdutnyttjande, tillgänglighet och offentlig lokalisering genomförs i uppsatsen med bakgrund av enkätundersökningen.
