About Us

What is Radio Luftballet?Radio Luftballet—anchored at the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (HVL)—is a place for imagining new worlds and sharing people’s stories about how we can contribute to the transition to a more sustainable society. Radio Luftballet hopes to open up connections and collaborations between the many sectors—cultural, commercial, social, political—working on transitions within their fields. In this project we wish to keep alive the historic ambitions of utopian thinking. But instead of creating fiction, we aim to enhance and promote already existing initiatives and bring attention to those at work on their tasks.What is transition?Around the world people are searching for pathways out of the carbon-intensive era. Transition takes many forms and is approached from many different angles. There must be a transition not only within the energy sector, but in most aspects of how we live our lives.Why do we need a transition?This year atmospheric concentrations of the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have surged at a record breaking speed and carbon dioxide levels have reached the highest level in 800,000 years. Humans have played the substantial part in this unprecedented increase. Human-induced climate change affects us all, however, there are a lot of things that can be done and the actions we take over the next few years will have massive consequences for those directly affected by climate change.Is this an art project?​Yes.Within the arts there is a strong tradition of imagining better worlds. Thomas More’s book Utopia, published in 1516, describes an imaginary island without private property and inspired policies and politics for years to come. William Morris, a textile artist and founder of the Arts and Crafts movement, described his craft-rich ideal society in 1888 in News From Nowhere.  Ernest Callenbach inspired the politics of the German Green Party through his book Ecotopia (1975), which describes his ideal view of a society located in Oregon.Is this something more than an art project?Yes.Framed within an art project, this is an interdisciplinary collaboration aimed at developing new forms of Transition Communication. We acknowledge that climate change is a complex issue that overlaps cultural, political, ethical, and psychological issues, and often appears daunting. We hope that in light of the complexity of transition, stories create a space for making changes in real life. Narratives provide a way for us to imagine our way out of the carbon-intensive era. Radio Luftballet strongly believes that the stories we share are part of the solution.Who are we?Radio Luftballet consists of Radio Luftballet initiator, Margrethe Kolstad Brekke, located in Bergen, Norway; Climate Change Management Master’s Program students, Calum Macintyre, Adam Gairns and Victoria Slaymark, located in Sogndal, Norway; and poet Alicia Cohen, located in Portland, Oregon. We hope the interdisciplinary of the project will generate a creative space from which to take a step back from our professional perspectives. We hope to form common human ground, distill the essence of transition stories and evaluate and discuss what we find to be effective Transition Communication.​Radio Luftballett is produced by Margrethe Kolstad Brekke/KORO Vågestykke.Soundscapes and jingles by Hilde Annine Hasselberg and Thorolf Thuestad-- based on  Jon Gjerde`s recordings of hanggliderloops.

'Interrail' and the transition to using less air flights

In this podcast, Calum explores the concept of the 'one ticket for the whole journey' Interrail pass and to what extent this can allow people to take less flights. He looks into the positives and challenges to this method and how it can be best used in the future to make it easier for societies to travel long distances by train. In this podcast series Calum will look into different aspects of societal and behavioural change in Norway and Europe - from train travel in Europe to how businesses can be ‘agents of change’. He is studying on the Climate Change Management Master at HVL and is interested in how societies will shift to lower patterns of consumption in the future in order to meet the goals set out in the Paris Agreement. In his first podcast he will explore how easy it is to travel between Norway and Scotland by train, and if an ‘Interrail’ pass can make this easier. The benefits and drawbacks of this method to make travelling by train easier will be discussed. In the nex...

Adam in the Energylab

Adam Gairns in conversation with Hans-Kristian Ringkjøb and Kristin Guldbrandsen Frøysa from the Energylab the Energy Podcasts produced by Adam Gairns A new podcast series that seeks to simplify the complicated language and terms used to describe the energy systems we depend on everyday. Through interviews with a wide range of people and groups currently working on technological solutions we'll explore basic terms — like what is a "kilowatt"?— and broader issues such as what can researchers and politicians can do to better communicate their energy projects. From discussions of the energy that we consume daily to discussions of how it scales up into larger undertakings like off shore wind turbines, we explore what it takes to bring clean energy to Norway and beyond.

The Natural Circus on Tango and Ecology

Radio Luftballett met with Lars Schmidt and his Natural Circus on the train from Bergen to Oslo. www.larsschmidt.org Lars might be described as a sort of modern day drop out. He is a nature lover. Some say he is a poet. He grew up in a small village, spending most of his time outside. Since then he has been wearing many hats. He has worked as ice-cream vendor, truck driver, actor for film and television, dancer, as gardener and landscaper, theater director, filmmaker and shepherds help, doorman and photographer... International conferences with academics and politicians, club or contemporary art scenes, life on organic farms, collaborations with movie stars, or times at the military are parts of his pathway. He has lived in luxury villas, run down squats, expensive hotels, and a couple of vans, and knows the life of mountain shepherds as well as the bustling of metropoles like New York, Paris, Buenos Aires or Berlin. In short: He has made the round enough to experience the absurdity...
