Who pays for the pandemic …. and the climate crisis?
Interviewed by the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation (ORF) on the costs of the pandemic, Tabea Bork-Hüffer argues that we must not forget our other great challenges and not only financial but also social and health costs arising particularly from the climate crisis. Acting now is necessary to prevent future generations from facing untenable costs. Check the article (in German) here: Wer die Schulden der Pandemie bezahlt – tirol.ORF.at.

What Do We Do?
Digitisation, human mobilities, and urbanisation are major drivers altering spaces and societies from local to global scales. The Transient Spaces & Societies Research Group takes a critical perspective on these cross-sectional themes and scrutinises how social practices and power relations shape them.
We are an interdisciplinary team based at the Department of Geography at the University of Innsbruck.
