Fight or Flight – Climate Stand or Climate Run! 
Our climate is changing.  How we live and where we live will have to change.  How will we change? Project ‘Fight or Flight’ explores the issues around how we adapt to change.  We look at our changing weather, its impact on people from flooding and coastal erosion, and how we might cope. Should we fight or flight

Ensuring tomorrow - back to the future or to the future and beyond
We would like to think that we want to make the best sustainable decisions when selecting products and services.  However, we don't necessarily have the data and tools to do so.How can we be supported in the sustainable selection of products and services? Perhaps we could be inspired by the past and/or use current and future technology. What might we need and what could a solution look like?

MIM - app for green transport
In this project you are welcome to participate in developing a solution using cutting edge technology that will help cities to handle today’s and future climate change challenges. The developed solution will be an engine for change that will guide and help both cities and citizens to choose greener transport methods and inform about the impact these choices have, both for each individual and society as a whole.

Wird4 
This project shows and teaches the fundamental understanding and implementation of a practical robotic system with defining a scientifically sustainability-exploration-task on the investigation of the water quality, water fauna, water temperature, water acidity in the lake of Storsjön in Östersund and collect research data using this robot system.

Forest Game

Circular Design Project
Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs (Brundtland, 1987). To achieve this, we must redesign the way we produce, consume and recycle today. In this context, design makes a difference.
