Co-production of seasonal representations for adaptive institutions

Project description

Getting back in touch with the changing seasons

Rapid climatic, natural and social changes are throwing seasonal representations out of sync with the weather. For instance, a ‘white Christmas’ is now a distant memory in many parts of the world. This is just one example of seasonal representations, which can take different forms like stories, images, experiences, scientific forecasts, natural signs, proverbs or practices. The EU-funded CALENDARS project will explore how climate change might be undermining the ideas or representations of seasons as we know them. The hypothesis is that people cannot adapt well to the changing seasons if they live according to outdated and inaccurate ideas of seasons. This is important considering that all our institutions – from schools to hospitals and government to sports clubs – schedule activities based on different seasonal representations.
