FF frontal Maja Hattvang

Freddy Fjellheim , b. 1957. Member of DnF, NF, NFF and Norsk Kritikerlag. Debuted with 1. Olsen’s Bok in 1983 and has published 16 books. The first environmental text I got in print in 1970 (The Democrat) after an excursion with the research vessel Pandalus Navigator: Man, plankton and photosynthesis became the starting point for my writing. About a decade later, I set out to explore an eco-literary form, i.a. in The Emerald / Sequences, 1989. Language = environment = literature. Social and ecological issues also put me on the trail of the genre I call «essayistic action», and the eco-theme is otherwise integrated in many of my books and articles, blue. in Relationships (1990) and Community Art (2010). As a literary critic, I have been concerned with promoting a reading that takes into account the climate crisis’ new premises for all types of utterances. In 2011, I established the festival Poetry in Borderlands together with Wiggo Andersen and in 2013 led FKA’s initiative group and first board. The same year I co-created this website with Martin Fjeld. Latest releases: 3 Bøker (2017) og (2021).

  1. Hei,
    Veldig bra med forfatternes klimaaksjon! Jeg arbeider med et fag som heter miljøpsykologi (envirnmental psychology) og har i mange år jobbet i undervisning og forskning med hvordan man kan forstå den menneskelige atferden som skaper de globale miljøproblemene. Det er helt avgjørende å få på plass lovgivning som forhindrer allmenningens tragedie ved å gjøre det umulig å være gratispassasjer (dvs la andre dra lasset) for individer, bedrifter og nasjoner. «Mutual coercian mutually agreed upon» (Hardin, 1968) er det som trengs. I tillegg må vi gjøre det lett og attraktivt å å gjøre det riktige (pro-miljøatferd) og vanskelig og aversivt å fortsette med miljøødeleggende handlinger.

    Einar Strumse,
    Cand psychol., dr.philos (miljøpsykologi)
