Nature‐Based Solutions. Large-scale landscape measures to reduce the impacts of climate change.
Elisabeth Sjödahl, Associate Professor, AHO – Arkitektur – og designhøgskolen I Oslo

The overall aim of NATURACT is to recommend nature-based solutions (NBS) as an agent for large-scale transformations in land use and land cover in vulnerable landscapes to integrate mitigation measures for emissions reduction and adaptation measures to reduce the impacts of climate change. To accomplish this, NATURACT fills a knowledge gap recently identified by global institutions (IPCC, 2018; GCA, 2019; WEF, 2020; OECD, 2021; UNEP, 2021), namely integrating expertise and competence from the academic disciplines within adaptation and mitigation. NATURACT leverages NBS to couple climate adaptation and climate mitigation efforts through an interdisciplinary approach.

AHO participates with landscape architects and designers with Systems Oriented Design (SOD) approach. SOD caters to the interdisciplinary reach of the project and negotiates the complexity of climate change and NBS interventions. The scientific consortium includes two of the leading Norwegian research institutes working with climate systems and impacts, NORCE and NGI. NATURACT equally includes NIKU to incorporate cultural landscape perspectives in change.

Climate justice and territory.
Alejandra Mancilla, Professor, Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas, University of Oslo

Climate change will affect the territories of millions, both in direct ways (for example, through sea level rise), and indirect ways (for example, through mitigation measures that require displacing whole populations). In this talk, I present an overview of the justice-related challenges that climate change poses to the territorial rights of certain collectives, from states to indigenous groups, and point to some issues that have fallen under the radar and yet deserve more philosophical attention.

Resilience and Norwegian Agricultural Landscapes
Kerstin Potthoff, Associate Professor, LANDSAM, Norwegian University of Life Sciences
Resilience is a well-established theoretical concept; however, what does resilience mean when applied to landscapes? The presentation provides some examples from Norwegian agricultural landscapes.

Coastal change in the Arctic: designing with time
Eimear Tynan, Associate Professor, UiT – Norges arktiske universitet, Tromsø

Based upon pedagogic work undertaken in the Arctic, this presentation examines the multiple changes that are occurring along the harbour of Longyearbyen, Svalbard. In Autumn 2022, a group of landscape architecture students visited and explored the town’s harbour for which a major expansion is planned. The students proposed a range of landscape interventions for the future of the harbour. These designs were informed by local ecological, social, cultural, climatic and political factors. One of the main questions addressed in the teaching of this course was how landscape architects can facilitate both human and more-than-human needs in an area which is undergoing rapid change. In order to address such complex change the course involved working closely with time through a rich engagement with the specific qualities of the existing harbour area.
