Beskrivelse:

INTERDISCIPLINARY CLIAMTE CONFERENCE

AT AALBORG UNIVERSITY MARCH 11-12 2020.

Water is key to life, humanity and societal dynamics. We drink it. We consist of it. Water is a life-giving resource and water is a destructive force. Water makes many mechanical and industrial productions run. Water is sacred in religious communities. And for modernity water represents economic value, energy and leisure.

The aim of this interdisciplinary conference CLIMATE HACK: WATER is to engage scholars from multiple disciplines in a common dialogue about nature, humanity and society with the intended purpose of advancing our cognitive capacity and knowledge about climate change and the biodiversity crisis.

THE MISSION:

This interdisciplinary conference is the first unique one-of-a-kind event for academic scholars and societal & business activists with a deep and profound interest in pushing climate action. The initial step for the climate movement was to create a strong worldwide political agenda with a genuine interest in mitigating climate change on a global scale. We are now on a mission to hack and disrupt the current climate discourse in order to design concrete pathway plans amplifying a comprehensive and coherent green transition of the carbon-based society and economy. The CLIMATE HACK conferences will take up new perspectives such as water, health, wood & food in order to draw the attention to the planning process of climate politics.

WHY WATER:

The main objective of this first 2020 CLIMATE HACK conference is to look into one critical aspect: How can water management and stewardship of the global commons be a vehicle to address and mitigate the climate and biodiversity crisis. Water is key to life, humanity and societal dynamics. Water is the crucial molecule when searching for potential life in deep space. Water represents economic value, energy and leisure. And freshwater is our planet’s most precious resource connecting challenges of climate change, biodiversity crisis, pollution, international economy and geopolitics. The hypothesis is that sound water politics will clarify new productive tracks within climate mitigation policies.

 

Deadline for panel submission: December 15 2019.

PANELS

WATER MATTERS

Lars Botin, Assistant professor, Aalborg University

 

BEACH CAST: WASTE OR RESOURCE?

Great amounts of biomass rinses ashore at our coasts; a mix of eelgrass and seaweeds. If the biomass is collected and utilized, a win win win situation can occur: The beach becomes more attractive to tourists and locals, the biomass can form the basis of new sustainable products AND it helps the marine environment to recover from the increasing eutrophication caused by high levels of nutrients.

Based on two cases this panel wish to explore the possibilities and legislative obstacles for utilizing the blue biomass that rinses ashore, and to put focus on the need for action and the positive externalities that beach collection will have on the Baltic marine environment.

HACK THE FLOW: WATER AS POLITICS

This panel explores what it would mean to think of politics on the model of water, both as a metaphor and as a material dimension of political agency. The panel will pay particular attention to power as a flow of potentialities that can be blocked or redirected in multiple ways. The panelists will consider this idea with reference to concrete cases such as climate migration and climate adaptation in coastal areas.

ONTO PON – BEING POLITICS OF NATURE

You are invited On To PoN. A place where humans and nonhumans enjoy equal rights to negotiate their existence. Politics of Nature (PoN) is an ecosystem of thinkers and activists that have merged Bruno Latour’s eponymous work with a myriad of technologies, disciplines, and open source philosophy, to rapidly prototype and share new societal operating systems. Our hope is that some of these could enable humans and non-humans to coexist and thrive. The first prototype is a board game providing a gamified entry to the political procedure and philosophy. In 2020, 1 became 30+ board games. PoN is becoming digital and is applied for watershed management. Theatre and VR productions are enabling our immersion into new realities – OnTo PoN.

On the panel, we will dive into two controversies currently addressed by PoN: 1) Water allocation in Eerste River Catchment in South Africa and 2) The urban development of Amager Fælled in Copenhagen.

PoN invites you to explore, interrogate and refine the analogue, hybrid and digital tools that are currently inspiring the emergence of alternative political realities around the world.

PoN – we play to exist. www.politicsofnature.org
