Gender perspectives on sustainability focus of new project

How can we enable sustainable living in the Nordic region? How can we better understand how differences in lifestyle arise? This is the focus for the project Sustainability, lifestyles, and consumption from a gender perspective, which is a part of the cross-sectoral Sustainable lifestyles in the Nordic region programme.

Through current knowledge, the mapping aims to make gender stereotypes visible and challenged in relation to consumption and lifestyle, and contribute to a better understanding of how differences arise, are strengthened and reproduced.

Research projects granted funds for new knowledge about sexual harassment at work

A questionnaire that could provide an essential tool for comparative research on sexual harassment in the Nordic region – how could it be designed and tested? This will be analysed in the two research projects that have been granted funds in the first Open Call, within the research initiative by the Nordic Council of Ministers.

This spring the first of two Open Calls opened, within the Nordic Research Initiative. Open Call 1 was aimed at ongoing research projects, where a grant from the research initiative would enable a Nordic dimension to be added to the project.
