CALENDARS Project

Logo

The CALENDARS project will empirically explore the relationship between different institutions’ ideas of seasons and their successful adaptation through an in-depth comparative study in two local communities in Norway and New Zealand.
The overall objective of the project is:

To advance knowledge and understanding of how seasonal representations shape and are shaped by institutions, and  to critically appraise the quality of these representations for contributing to successful adaptation to seasonal change.
