In the Finnish context, a significant target for emission reduction policies has been the country’s carbon dioxide intensive peat energy sector. As a part of the path towards a climate neutral Finland by 2035, the government has set the aim to halve peat energy use by 2030 and, as a part of these transition policies, the principle of providing a just transition for those deriving their livelihood from peat harvesting has been embraced. However, the use of peat has been declining at a much more rapid pace than anticipated, also jeopardizing the just transition promised for those engaged in the peat industry. In this article, we take a focus on the experiences of those who are deriving their livelihood from peat harvesting and related activities with an interest on how they are experiencing the justness of Finland’s peat policies and the ongoing transition. The experiences of our 400 survey respondents reflect the grave societal, economic and human consequences of the multifaceted failures of Finland’s peat transition policies. The lessons learned from the Finnish peat transition can be utilized in planning and implementing more sustainable policies for other livelihoods facing similar transitions.</p> <p> </p> <p>peat; energy; climate; just transition; Finland</p> Hanna Lempinen Annukka Vainio Copyright (c) 2022 Terra 2022-11-01 2022-11-01 134 3 149–167 149–167 10.30677/terra.113497 Koskien valjastamisesta patojen purkuun https://terra.journal.fi/article/view/115605 <p style="font-weight: 400;">The latest phase of river restorations is the closure of small hydroelectric plants. The precedent of this stage in Finland is the Hiitolanjoki river, which is a transboundary river crossing the Finnish-Russian border before flowing to Lake Ladoga. This article focuses on the shift in the hydrosocial rhythm of the Hiitolanjoki river from industrial to post-industrial rhythm. In a waterbody with the industrial rhythm, dams regulate the flow and speed of water in line with the demand for electricity. Current dismantling of dams and restoring its original rhythm is a result of the persistent work of local actor-network which has been able to create a wide supporting network including actors from the Hiitolanjoki river to the European Union’s and the Finnish government’s water and fish stock policies. The case of Hiitolanjoki river shows that achieving results requires an active and committed local network of actors.</p> Pertti Rannikko Copyright (c) 2022 Terra 2022-11-01 2022-11-01 134 3 169–182 169–182 10.30677/terra.115605 Surun paikka https://terra.journal.fi/article/view/113034 <p style="font-weight: 400;">In this article we study the process of grieving, places of grief, and their multiple meanings in parents’ lives after the loss of a child. Based on interviews with nine parents, we analyse the socio-spatial dimensions and practices of bereavement. Grief, mourning, and remembering are experienced in physical places and in the body, as well as through socio-spatial dialogue. According to our interviews, bereavement of a child continues to be a recurring experience throughout daily life. Our main conclusion is that grief is only partly tied to particular physical places (<em>location</em>). Moreover, grief travels in time, and it is always related to other lived places experienced through the body of the parent. Our analysis illustrates how the body becomes a place of grief, and it highlights the role of everyday dialogue in maintaining parents’ continuing bonds with their deceased child. The meaning of places changes with loss in parents’ everyday life, and dialogue allows for maintaining a promise of care related to close relationships.</p> Ulla Tuunanen Anna-Kaisa Kuusisto Copyright (c) 2022 Terra 2022-11-01 2022-11-01 134 3 135–147 135–147 10.30677/terra.113034 Maantiede antaa mahdollisuuksia nuorten merkityksellisten ajattelutaitojen ja tietojen kehittymiselle https://terra.journal.fi/article/view/121619 Eerika Virranmäki Kirsi Valta-Hulkkonen Anne Pellikka Copyright (c) 2022 Terra 2022-11-01 2022-11-01 134 3 183–188 183–188 Maantieteen kriittinen tila https://terra.journal.fi/article/view/121872 Kimmo Härmä Copyright (c) 2022 Terra 2022-11-01 2022-11-01 134 3 188–191 188–191 Geomedia on keskeinen osa maantieteen opetusta, mutta miksi ja mitä se on? https://terra.journal.fi/article/view/121685 Petteri Muukkonen Laura Hynynen Lauri Jäntti Panu Lammi Copyright (c) 2022 Terra 2022-11-01 2022-11-01 134 3 191–193 191–193 Visuaaliset kuvastot maantieteelliseen ajatteluun virittäjinä https://terra.journal.fi/article/view/121566 Markus Hilander Copyright (c) 2022 Terra 2022-11-01 2022-11-01 134 3 194–197 194–197 Quo vadis, geografin i gymnasiet? https://terra.journal.fi/article/view/121628 Christina Ruth Copyright (c) 2022 Terra 2022-11-01 2022-11-01 134 3 197–198 197–198
