Time geography for planning a sustainable urban life
Linköping University, Department of Thematic Studies, Technology and Social Change. Linköping University, Faculty of Arts and Sciences.
2017 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

My starting pioint is the importance of taking both culture and nature into account in planning and Hägerstrand's apporoach of geography as an inclusive discipline, coining concepts like all-ecology” or ”socio-technical ecology”.  Another starting point is time-space and pockets of local orders as our units of analysis and methodological approach: study of processes in their contexts. Hägerstrand writes about a game for co-existence, where co-existence is central in the time geography work. The game includes negotiations, adjustments and push outs, and competition for part of the time-space. A description of processes will show who are the players and what resources are used. Micro-level perspective are key and is a base for understanding bigger movements in society. Case study where Initially co-existence seemed impossible but in a long planning process proved co-existence possible. Conclusions show that urban planning must not be rushed. More sustainable solutions might appear with time. Nitty gritty perspectives make up our macro perspectives. Macro lense (photography) – large magnification of smal things – useful metaphore.
