Department of Geography Space, Nature and Society

Space, Nature and Society

In our group, we focus on exploring and understanding the dynamic interactions between society and the environment. We concentrate on questions and perceptions of nature and landscapes, especially those surrounding parks, biodiversity, conservation, and climate change. We analyze the various values and justifications that influence negotiations over nature and landscapes, use social theory to interrogate power dynamics inherent in these, and engage various stakeholders and integrate different knowledge systems to find creative solutions. Our aim is to contribute to transformative change that addresses the contemporary 'polycrisis,' especially with respect to biodiversity loss, social inequality and climate change. 

Further foci: geographies of young people and education, migration, urban night life and teacher education
