The soundwalk is climate fiction in a radio theatre format, and can be experienced in Hyllie and Holma in Malmö, Sweden. The story is told through characters from Malmö, who look back on the defining events of the climate transition.
“We believe that climate change must be made tangible and real in order to engage people”, says Johannes Stripple, a political scientist who researches climate narratives. “One way of doing this is connecting to specific locations; in this case Malmö, Sweden.”
The researchers stress that Memories from the transition is not an attempt at an accurate forecast, but rather an engaging story, where climate change is experienced – the listeners decide for themselves whether the solutions and methods presented are something we should strive towards.
