How will a warmer climate affect our coasts and how much will the sea levels rise? And what happens to the society when the landscape is changing? Researchers at SLU raise these questions with the exhibition Advancing waters! on display at SLU in Uppsala this autumn.
The exhibition Advancing waters! (in Swedish Vattnet kommer!) portrays landscape changes, management responses and strategies in relation to rising sea levels. Research results in the natural sciences encounter methods based on art and design, with the aim of providing greater scope for understanding, but also accepting, in order to respond appropriately.
Curator for the exhibition is Professor Carola Wingren at the Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management, SLU. Graphic design and scenography by Design Annika Carlsson. The exibition language is Swedish.
The exhibition was previously presented last winter at the Form/Design Center in Malmö. This autumn you can experience a revised version of the exhibition at SLU in Uppsala. It is part of the acitivities celebrating SLU turning 40 years as a university and coinciding with SLU's Environmental monitoring and assessment turning 20 years as a line of business.
The inauguration will be held on Friday 8 September at 2:30 PM.
