My ‘politics of nature’ research is much focused on Arctic and Boreal development issues, examined both as local/regional and transnational/planetary questions. A particular target has been Joensuu, a provincial city in Eastern Finland, in which context signs and options of sustainable city planning are identified, examined and promoted. In research practices I have applied and upgraded ‘environmental action research’ methods. As a geographer, I encourage research activities that deal with contemporary socioenvironmental concerns and which also include societal participation.
