Miljöinformation från teori till praktik.

Environmental information : from theory to practice. (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the process of transferring information from science to "the field" of environmental protection in Sweden. I have studied four Swedish environmental organizations, Greenpeace Nordic, WWF Sweden, the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation and Friends of the Earth Sweden to see how they search/get information. I have also studied the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and its role as sender of information, since it is the authority which is responsible for environmental information in Sweden. I have used information and communication theories as a help to analyse my results. While working on this paper I realized that my methods were not the best. In spite of that I did get a better picture of how these organizations work. Some conclusions I have drawn are that databases play a smaller role than I had expected, networking is important and that the members of the organizations themselves are vital parts of the information systems.
