Three projects has been selected in SLU Landscape's Call for ideas 2023/2024: Fieldwork Approaches - Reconnecting to our living territory

This year’s CFI asked for ideas how to re-engage in fieldwork in order to rethink our fieldwork approaches.

These three Call For Ideas (CFI) project proposals has received funding (50 000 SEK each) from SLU Landscape:


Leva och lära av landskap
(Live and learn from landscapes)

In this project, we want to contribute new knowledge about what pupils remember from their school days and how that time influenced them in their life choices later in life.

Foraging and crafting knowledge: Going beyond walking, seeing and being
