Project Details


The project’s goal is to explore how conflicts over green land use unfold in new spatial and digital arenas. The use of land for climate or environmental purposes is likely to become a highly contested issue, where different concerns for climate, local environment, agriculture, industry, quality of living etc. can collide. The project will investigate how civil society (understood in a broad sense and ranging from institutionalised interest organisations to social movements) presents, contests and negotiates these divergent practices and views about land use in the public debates. This includes analysis of emerging new conflict lines and alliances, new forms of online and offline mobilisation, organisation and participation and the possible formations of green citizenship. On this basis, the project will explore democratic challenges and potentials for publics addressing green land use.
