Streams & Currents


Through the FLOW project, our research hopes to gain better insights into how European youth shape and hold their expectations about the futures of oceans and waters, and the relations, values and emotions they exhibit when considering the present and future states of our waters. FLOW aims to achieve this by providing foresight on the human-water relationships of young generations. One central task of this foresight study is to conduct horizon scanning research.

Within work package 2 – Streams and Currents, horizon scanning activities focus on cultural sources that portray and enact human-water relations, such as books, movies and video games. They are conceptualized as containing potential signals of change that are collected through various modes of research. Finally, signals are clustered and analyzed in detail to generate forward-looking insights into the relations, emotions, hopes and fears, values, expectations, and anticipatory assumptions underlying them. The results of this foresight study are used to contribute to a better understanding of present and future connections between humans and water.
