We live in a state of planetary climate emergency. This is becoming increasingly clear in all aspects of life. But what is meant by the terms “climate” and “emergency,” and what happens when they are brought together in a “climate emergency”? What does it mean for us to orient ourselves ethically, culturally, politically and cognitively in the near-to unfathomable complexity of the climate, especially in a situation defined as an “emergency”? How can we create spaces for action in relation to temporalities and scales that are difficult to grasp?
Center for Climate Emergency Studies (Centre CES) is a transdisciplinary platform for research, education and action related to the climate emergency. Critical theoretical, scientific and not least artistic perspectives and methods meet in the centre’s activities. The focus is on experimentation, creativity, criticality and climate emergency-related action.
This site is an informal project “playground” for participants and those interested in working more with us. For our formal Linnaeus University web presence, please visit us here.
