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 discussions and spark creativity regarding the transition to a post-fossil society.
Much of the story is inspired by existing proposals, emerging innovations, or research on the transformations needed to meet our climate targets. Therefore, the walk could be used as a novel discussion forum for decision makers.
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 future generations. Therefore, we believe that the soundwalk could be very useful for decision makers since it is a creative way to raise questions about “What kind of society do we want to live in?” and “How do we create it?”
Furthermore, some of the background research and further reading on some of the topics covered in Memories from the Transition can be found at the Ministry of imagination. The information could be used as background material for the discussions.
If you have any questions or wonder if we can assist you in anyway, you are welcome to contact us. We will gladly accompany you during the walk and the following discussion!
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.
