Funding Phase: 2019-2022 (36 months) | Budget: 226.830 €

Processes of rapid and profound social and environmental change characterize the remaining rainforest areas of Indonesia. We explore these transformations as manifestations of future making und place the aspirations of local actors at centre stage. Future making refers to the ways in which visions and expectations of the future inform action in the present und how consequently the future is produced in the present.

Taking East Kalimantan as a point of departure, we study practices of future making in an interplay of numerous actors, various interests, and institutional settings linked across manifold scales. We explore diverse visions of the future and values linked to aspirations for a “better” life. Furthermore, we investigate how visions of the future are expressed, in which temporal and spatial frames of reference they are placed and how they are translated into practice.
