Abstract [en]

Human induced climate change is a defining issue of our time. The issue of climate change is scientific as well as political and mediated in many ways, interpreted and ascribed meaning in a cultural context. Climate change as a cultural phenomenon is constructed and negotiated within a shared frame of reference. The purpose of this study is to investigate the participants’ sense- making of climate change in their everyday life. Research questions asked are: How do the participants make sense of and deal with the issue of climate change in their everyday lives? In what ways does it structure their social relations? How are relations between individuals and the surrounding society articulated? The study is based on qualitative interviews with eight people. Analyses show how expectations of individual accountability and reflexive decision making relate to identity and lifestyle, how social negotiations of climate change participates in producing group identities, where a notion of self is constructed through distinction from ”others” and the ways in which daily habits and routines are shared as well as contested within couples relationships.
