The Argumenta Grant 1/2023 - 12/2024 (The Finnish Cultural Foundation)
We build interdisciplinary connections and understanding in the project between the social, cultural and ecological dimensions of sustainability especially within margins of society. Implementing sustainability transition in the margins needs to be managed and the people supported for the transition.
We build conceptual and empirical discussion connections, relying on multidisciplinary research while opening up the researchers’ own perspectives. Connections are also built between different sectors of society and, on the other hand, down to the level of everyday life and individual experiences. Three events will be organized around Finland consisting of seminars and workshops basing on different themes. The events create connections between the project’s researchers, experts and the participating local groups in relation to the topics under discussion.
The project also produces research data that builds connections between different sections of sustainability to support decision-making in welfare sector. This data helps to understand the opportunities and risks of Finnish welfare area model in the sustainability transition more broadly than only from the social and health issues’ points of view. The project brings together research about sustainability transition and looks for connections in interdisciplinary terrains that could help decision-makers and authorities to build comprehensive sustainability while supporting the agency of the margins.
