Dr Rebecca Ford

Part of the Institute for Northern Studies Autumn - Winter Seminar Series Dr Rebecca Ford presents 'Words and Waves: Exploring the Power of Stories, Community and Renewable Energy in Orkney'.

As the home of the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), Orkney has become a focus for an emerging Marine Renewable Energy sector. This has brought the local community into contact with individuals, organisations, and ideas from across the globe, and into dialogue with a range of local and global narratives about climate change, energy policy, economic development, environmental protection, and marine spatial planning.

This seminar explores the shared narratives that have emerged from these 'ecologies of meaning making' and suggests why understanding the power of stories in the process of technology development is important to our future relationships with energy and environment, in Orkney and beyond.
