What is this thing called environmental knowledge?

Environmental knowledge takes into account that we are a part of nature. People are a part of
the equation when it comes to managing the whole environment but there are also great
uncertainties.

How the world works is quite chaotic, complex and changing and in the end we
know very little about it. This ambiguity limit’s the role of science in environmental decision
making (Robertson & Hull 2001).

My Master Thesis

Look beyond the bin – Solid Waste Management at Asian Institute of Technology

Collection and recycling of beverage cartons at AIT – A research project report

The project shows that people are willing to separate waste at source if waste collection containers are strategically located and well indicated, but longer information campaigning and follow up is needed.

My Bachelor Thesis

Measures to prevent overstocking and overgrazing in woodlands, a case study in Babati

Article (in Spanish) about recycling of beverage cans

Investigando la gestión de latas de aluminio a través de los ojos de una sueca

The economic basis of Solid Waste Management in Poland, Sweden and Lithuania

The garbage management in Poland Sweden and Lithuania is more concentrated on waste treatment than prevention. The EU waste hierarchy is not followed in any of the three countries and too much is put on landfills and incinerated meanwhile too little is recycled. Still, the countries are slowly making progress by following EU directives.

Reflective article (in Swedish) about waste of nature resources and energy policy

I tider då media dagligen rapporterar om globala klimatförändringar, etanolbilar och Kyotoavtal kan man lätt tappa fokus och känna sig uppgiven inför framtidens förutspådda miljökaos.

Samtidigt finns det en utbredd ignorans bland svenskarna inför det faktum att vi lever i ett resursslösande välfärdssamhälle som har hög standard på bekostnad av
fattiga människor och moder jord.

A case study report about a mobile waste pipe in Sweden

From studying the local investment programmes in Sweden I can make the assumption that real enthusiasts (eldsjälar) are very important when projects are to be initiated and implemented. In many cases it’s pointed out how single persons have had impact on the proceeding of a project.

Industrial symbiosis to minimize contamination

There is a growing interest for the development of Industrial Symbiosis networks at local and regional levels. They are being promoted on the statement that more environmental improvements can be made if actions are pursued through synergies at the borders of each division than if pursued by individual units alone.

Reflective article (in Swedish) about how a swedish smoker indirectly encourages child labour

Är det svårt att fimpa rökning för sin egen hälsas skull? Är det betydelsefullt att alla länder följer FN:s konvention om barnets rättigheter med grundläggande krav för varje barn i världen?

Vad finns det för koppling mellan rökning av cigaretter i Sverige och utnyttjandet av barnarbete i utvecklingsländer?
