Co-created Nature: An Industrial PhD about narratives and management of new nature projects in Denmark

 How do citizens react when nature changes radically? What happens to their relation to nature when intensively cultivated fields are turned into extensively grazed meadows, drained wetlands are ‘let loose’ to flood and outdoor recreation areas are fenced off and nature is rewilded in national parks? And how can storytelling ensure a better co-creation of new nature projects in Denmark?

Given the entanglements of global climate and biodiversity crisis, Danish Nature Agency projects become larger, more complex and require better citizen involvement and conflict management. The purpose of this project is to explore and develop new narrative co-creation methods, which will help strengthen the social sustainability of new nature management in Denmark.
