The Role of Music in the Transition Towards a Culture of Sustainability

Music is essential to human survival and human development. Contrary to popular opinion, it is not an ‘add on;’ instead, it is the life-blood of culture and individual and collective identity and strengthens our bio-culture. Participatory music, in particular, may play a critical role in enabling human survival to climate change. Its ability to draw upon and illicit deep levels of both verbal and non-verbal imagery, symbols, emotions and social-knowledge-structures make it a vitalizing element for our current journey towards sustainability.

This paper first lifts up some of the rapidly growing literature concerning the cultural shift necessary to survive climate change and the role that art and music play in culture.

Mutt » et refusé au Salon des Indépendants de New York de 1917 – l’art contemporain n’a cessé d’alimenter ses créations au recyclage d’objets et matériaux délaissés. En parallèle, le recyclage est devenu dans de nombreux territoires pauvres une sorte d’artisanat à échelle industrielle qui réinjecte dans l’économie formelle quantité de matériaux récupérés et retravaillés. Dharavi, situé dans l’aire urbaine de Mumbai (Bombay), en est l’un des plus grands au monde. L’ONG SNEHA a ainsi eu l’idée de croiser ces deux univers distants en organisant la Biennale d’art de Dharavi, du 15 février au 7 mars 2015.

German ′Transition Towns′ ride wave of change

No surprise really. The pot is far too large for the small camping stove. Cornelia Dorsch takes off the lid to check whether she can add the vegetables yet. She's standing in front of a makeshift table on Servatii Square, where she's about to serve free soup to passersby. All the ingredients are vegetables from the local farmer’s market that were discarded for being slightly discolored.

The cooking project is called "Eat up," and its site has been chosen carefully.

Housing Prototypes: Collective House

Sven Markelius was an important member of the Stockholm architectural avant-garde in the 1930's. Along with Gunnar Asplund and others, Markelius was instrumental in bring the ideology of Modern Architecture to Sweden as one of the authors of the Functionalist manifesto acceptera, published in 1931. Markelius also socialized with a group of radical Social Democrats who shared an interest in the new architecture and a new social order. From this time, Markelius, along with Alva Myrdal who was a leader in the movement advocating communal housing as a means of emancipating the working woman from the burdens of housekeeping and child rearing, developed an interest in the idea of collective housing. Markelius believed that married working women needed specialized housing with facilities such as communal kitchens, childcare centers, and housekeeping services.

The association supports existing co-housing units as well as groups intending to create new units. Originally formed in 1981, it has recently been revitalised with the prime purpose to inform the public about cohousing as an alternative, and to influence authorities to facilitate the creation and running of such units. "Kollektivhus NU currently has 42 cohousing units as full members, and 15 organisations working in favour of collaborative housing.

There are also a number of individual supporting members. The over 40 cohousing units that exist in Sweden are mainly the result of civil society campaigns and positive responses from public housing authorities during the 1980s. Today the trend is again turning in favour of collaborative housing. EU project for elderly cohousing How can elderly people with disabilities get more influence over their housing situation?
