New unit at Thematic Studies: Environmental Change
Linköping University is pooling its resources in terms of environmental research at the Department of Thematic Studies. The Unit of Water and Environmental Studies and CSPR (Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research) are joining forces, to form the Unit of Environmental Change.
Linköping University is establishing a department of thematic studies focussed on environmental change and global challenges. The reorganisation recently decided by the University Board will see the new unit, Environmental Change, commence operations in August.
“Climate change - does it exist?”
Personal experience influences our perception of reality more than theoretically based information. These are the findings of a study of how Swedish farmers view climate change.
Farmers are seen as a strategically important group in relation to climate change. They both influence and are influenced by climate change, to a greater extent than many others. Therese Asplund has been studying how farmers perceive and think about the issue of climate change. She defended her thesis at Water and Environmental Studies, Linköping University, within the Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research (CSPR).
