Radioactive waste and beyond

Information and Memory for Future Decision Making

Claudio Pescatore, affiliated researcher at Linnaeus University and associated with our UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures, completed a vision and discussion document on preserving information and memory over centuries and millennia in the context of sustainable development and the future human environment, available here.

The document will provide a basis for discussion at a workshop to be held in Stockholm, 21-23 May 2019, on understanding and improving practices for preserving information and memory of projects that may entail long-term legacies for land use and the future human environment. Pescatore’s document will help starting a broad-based reflection in Sweden and elsewhere on how to aid future generations maintain or regain awareness of some of the most relevant environmental legacies that they will inherit – notably nuclear waste.

In 2017, Linnaeus University in Kalmar, Sweden, was awarded a UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures. This is one of eight Chairs in Sweden, and the only one within the cultural sector. Cornelius Holtorf, holder of the UNESCO Chair, alongside his team, will continue to generate ideas through this forum.
