I am currently involved in a project Sustainable Communities through Digital Design The purpose is to investigate the role of digital design as a contributor and carrier of meaning in sustainability activists movements within the Baltic Sea rim. The result of the study will provide a body of knowledge about how activist movements are ordered and interacted online, as well as a thorough critical analysis and description of the interaction design elements that contribute to reinforce the movements. This analysis will cover both how interaction design may influence people towards societal and sustainability engagement and how interaction design can be systematically evaluated from the perspective of norms and values in contrasting countries in the Baltic Sea rim. The research issues are: 

- How norms and values are communicated through digital design in order to inspire sustainable actions and change in relation to local regions within the Baltic Sea rim.
o What role various digital media play for urban farmers.

I hav just finnisht research in a three year project that has the title: The story of crucian carp in the Baltic Sea region History and a possible future, founded by the Baltic Sea foundation Research leader Håkan Olsén.

 The overall purpose of this research project was to focus, in an interdisciplinary perspective, on the history and current status of the fish crucian carp, Carassius carassius (L.), in the Baltic Sea region, and to evaluate the species´ future potential in aquaculture on a local basis. It is very likely that the escalating problems in world fisheries and aquaculture based on predatory fish will result in increasing interest in omnivorous and herbivore species. This will give species such as crucian carp and tench (Tinca tinca L.) a renaissance as a food source in the northern hemisphere. The project is composed of three closely interlinked parts. One part is based on the history of the crucian carp in human use and the second part on its possible future use in aquaculture. The third part of the project will focus on the origin and routes of spreading of crucian carp in Sweden and the Baltic region
