Memories from the transition transports the listener to a future Malmö and tells a story of how a transition to a fossil-free city may look like. Our aim is that the soundwalk will contribute to a discussion and spark creativity regarding the transition to a post-fossil society.
The soundwalk covers interesting and thought provoking questions about the climate crisis, the future, and how to transition to a post-fossil society that is sustainable for us and for future generations. We're convinced that everyone, whether or not Malmö is their home, will find the story interesting and perhaps even a bit provocative since it raises questions about “What kind of city do we want to live in?” and “How do we create the transition?”
The soundwalk is accessible for everyone and free of charge. The walk is appropriate for most ages, however, we do recommend younger participants to have a grown-up nearby to explain some words and concepts. You can either do the walk on your own or walk together as a group. We recommend you to do the walk together so you can discuss it afterwards.
For those who want to dig deeper into the topics we touch on in the walk, we recommend a visit to the Ministry of imagination—a landing page where we've gathered the facts that we based the story on.
If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact us.
How do I do the walk?
To do the walk you need to:
- Download the app Climaginaries on your smartphone.
- Have a fully charged smartphone and a pair of headphones.
The soundwalk consists of two acts and is two hours in total. Each act is about 1 hour and you can walk the acts at separate times if you don’t want to do the whole walk in one day.
The walk can be experienced every day that the roof of Emporia is accessible, usually between 10-20 every day. We recommend to begin the walk at 18.30 at the latest, to be sure to complete the walk before Emporia close.
The first act starts at Hyllie torg in Malmö and continues up on the roof of Emporia. The frist act ends by walking down the stairs inside the mall.
The second act begins close to Hyllie torg, at Arenagatan: between the stairs to the railway platform and the parking garage. You will walk past the water tower and in to Holma, where you will end the walk on top of the highest hill.
When you reach the starting point of the act, start the audio by tapping on the first point on the map in your phone. Afterward, just follow the instructions. The points of interest will show up as you walk.
The walk is also accessible without GPS. In this version, all points of interest in the walk are visible on the map and you can start the audio yourself by tapping on them.
