  1. Towards climate friendly vacation practices

    Lars Kjerulf Petersen, Anne Gammelgaard Ballantyne, Jonas Andreasen Lysgaard, Ana Horta & Stefan Bengtsson

    The purpose of this project is to investigate and support socio-cultural transition towards climate friendly vacation practices. The project integrates the academic fields of environmental sociology, communication and learning, utilizing practice theory and actor-network theory as theoretical entry points. It contributes to research by exploring how media and informal learning feed into and shape pro-environmental transition processes. Empirically, the project focuses on two groups of vacationers: young adults and the 50+ segment. Through a mixed method approach, it investigates the imaginaries, desires, competences and material conditions that influence vacation practices. These insights will illuminate ties between media content, informal learning and people’s lifeworld, expanding our understanding of how imaginaries, sentiments and competences are formed and maintained, thereby providing valuable lessons regarding the socio-cultural dimension of green transition in general.Description

  4. Novel photo-assisted systems for direct solar-driven reduction of CO2 to energy rich chemicals

    Allan Gross, Peter Enevoldsen, Anne Gammelgaard Ballantyne & Trine Bjørn Olsen

    Ethylene is an energy-rich chemical produced from fossil fuels in industry, with high commercial value and a strong presence in the global market. Targeting ethylene as the final product, the EU-funded SUN2CHEM project aims to develop solutions that will result in efficient solar-driven CO2 reduction. To do this, the project will develop all the components to be integrated into tandem photoelectrochemical cells and advanced photocatalytic reactors. It will also conduct environmental and social studies on the new technology in the context of a circular economy, its energy security impacts and the social acceptance of chemicals produced from sunlight conversion. The project will play a role in making us less dependent on fossil fuels and in reducing carbon emissions by CO2 conversion.Description
