Research through Design

During four days, Storm highlights Research through design with tangible examples and research talks about the impact, usefulness and distinctions in relation to other research methods. Research Through Design is a concept that describes a research approach where the design process in itself becomes a way of acquiring new knowledge.

Movie for Change

This spring Storm invites you to Movie for Change – five evenings to watch, discuss and reflect upon the subject of positive change!

The last Thursday of every month, between 17-20, we welcome you to a movie night about sustainable development. With specially invited guests we will thereafter address and discuss problems and opportunities for sustainable development connected to the theme of the movies.

Worried you’ll get hungry? At sign-up, you can pre-order a vegetarian wrap from Café Vindstilla (40 kr). There is also a microwave available – and free coffee! Feel free to bring some snacks.

The events are co-produced with the Department of Urban Studies, the Leadership for Sustainability master’s programme and Fenix Miljöförening.

31/1 – 17:00-20:00  The True Cost

On the theme of Sustainable Development Goal number
12 – Responsible consumption and production, we will kick the semester off with the documentary The True Cost. A film about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world.

The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. The True Cost explores the links between the consumer pressure for low-cost high fashion and the meagre existences of the sweatshop workers who produce the goods.

Special guests of the evening are Tom Nilsson (Ph.D. in political science, part of the research project MISTRA: Future Fashion), Kim Gerlach (Vinokilo/Drivhuset) and Jian Chen (SOPACT).

28/2 – 17:00-20:00  Chasing Coral

On the theme of Sustainable Development Goal number 14 – Life below water, February’s film is Chasing Coral. The world’s oceans – their temperature, chemistry, currents and life – drive global systems that make the Earth habitable for humankind. But coral reefs around the world are vanishing at an unprecedented rate. A team of divers, photographers and scientists set out on a thrilling ocean adventure to discover why and to reveal the underwater mystery to the world.

Guests for this evening to be announced.

28/3 – 17:00-20:00  Demain

During Drivhuset Days of Entrepreneurship, Movie for Change takes on goal number 9: Industries, innovation and infrastructure with the film Demain (Tomorrow). The filmmakers set out on a journey to meet the pioneers who are re-inventing agriculture, energy, economy, democracy and education. Joining those concrete and positive actions which are already working, they began to figure out what could be tomorrow’s world…

Hoffice at Storm

Every fourth week, we welcome you to set up office at Storm (Gäddan, Citadellsvägen 7). Bring your laptop and get started on that to-do-list in a distraction-free zone. Open all day from 08:30-17:00, drop in when you can!

Attend on Facebook

2019 dates:

  • Thursday 24/1
  • Wednesday 20/2
  • Wednesday 20/3
  • Wednesday 17/4
  • Wednesday 15/5

Inspired by the concept Hoffice, the day will be split into 45-minute silent working sessions with energizing breaks in-between. At the beginning of each session, everyone tells the group what they’re going to work on, and at the end of each session we check in with each other to see what we managed to get done.

We guarantee that you will end the day having accomplished even more than you planned for – without feeling drained of energy!

For Malmö University staff and students.
