• Can Design Thinking help End Global Poverty?

    A few months ago, Lundtan published an article introducing the topic of design thinking. You can find it here, “Design Thinking: What is it and why is it so popular?”. This article is a continuation of the initial post where we explored the possible applications of design thinking in the international development context. The field…

  • The Social Media Sugar Rush

    Nowadays, to abstain from social media is to be some hippie-nomad-luddite type who won’t embrace new technology. I reject this. Instead, I believe that changing our relationship with social media might just be the best decision you can make for your mental health. The capabilities of artificial intelligence are snowballing. Now, neural networks, designed to…

  • Swedish food industry – as fair as you think?

    You may recognize the circle above. “Från Sverige” (from Sweden) is a label which guarantees that the meat is 100% Swedish. The blue and yellow stamp implies that choosing Swedish meat is a choice you should be proud of. But is it? Less than a year ago, Aftonbladet discovered how chickens were boiled alive at…

  • Climate compensation is stupid!

    It sounds good, does it not? Justifying your overconsumption by buying products from a company that claims to plant a tree easing your mind, and their own. The concept of climate compensation is nothing other than a marketing strategy to sell more useless items with good conscience. We cannot wait for a tree to grow…

  • A Quarantine Daydream about Studio 54

    We all remember and long for the days of pre-social distancing due to covid-19. The days where we could go to an actual class instead of zoom, stand carefree with our friends in a packed queue outside of Grönt o’ Gott and lastly, attend our favourite nation in the evening in trust that we would…

  • Yes Ve-gan?

    I happen to be one of those people who suffers from extreme eco-anxiety. I don’t know if it’s the consequence of all the David Attenborough documentaries I watched as a kid or what my issue is but, recently I’ve had to find some coping mechanisms to combat my klimatångest. Therefore, over the past years I’ve…

  • The End of Society as we Know it?

    When I’m writing this, it is Monday 2.02 pm. Black Friday is this upcoming Friday. So far today, I have received 9 emails and 4 texts about “Black Week” and how prices are now lower than ever.  We live in a consumption society. Wherever you look, people try to make you consume more. Open your…

  • The Godmothers: Episode 1

    Should one be optimistic or pessimistic about the future? Would you rather kill your best friend or 1000 people you do not know? What should you say if you want to be edgy at parties? And is it possible to love Avocado, even if it’s brown? We are happy to release the very first episode…

  • What are the implicit consequences of explicit content?

    Once in a blue moon when I attempt to do what some call cooking, I listen to playlists that Mr. Spotify have created for me. (Why have a boyfriend when you can have algorithms?). On those playlists, there are always some songs that hit me hard with a nostalgia punch. They bring me back to…

  • Socrative – the future of education

    How can teachers make the students more active in the classrooms? Several teachers feel that there is a problem with the lack of student participation during lectures, most students don’t answer the questions the teachers ask, if they in fact even asks any questions. Sometimes it feels like the teacher just talks to the board…
