Kliimamuutustest rääkimine on olulisem, kui mitterääkimine. Nii vähemalt tundub, sest mitterääkimise korral võib mõnes riigis, kus nähtavaid märke on kerge mitte märgata, kliimaküsimus üldse tahaplaanile jääda. Siinviidatu on siiski üks huvitav sotsiaalteoreetiline tekst, mis ei peaks lugejaid kohutama, sest autori väljenduslaad on lihtsasti mõistetav.Head uudistamist!


“These approaches have in common that they see – in competing ways – climate change as the rather inevitable outcome of long-term socio-ecological processes, of some macro-historical logic.” (Wagner, 2022, p. 2)

Autor lubab:

“This article will analyse climate change with a view to advancing a more adequate approach to social phenomena of large scale and long duration in social theory by focusing on the actions, interpretations, events and mechanisms through which a trajectory of social development is continued or altered.” (Wagner, 2022, p. 2)

Keerulised lihtsustused:

“The IPCC emphasis on CO2 emissions and concentration for the analysis of climate change is a simplification that has well served to focus international political debate, among governments as in the Paris Agreement and its follow-ups as well as among social movements such as Fridays for Future.” (Wagner, 2022, p. 3)

Kuidas seletada muutuseid …

“At a closer look, they raise much more specific questions: If the period of the Industrial Revolution marks the rise of an instrumental relation to nature, why do CO2 emissions increase rather moderately for over a century, at least if compared with the century that follows?” (Wagner, 2022, p. 3)

Normatiivne ja funktsionaalne lähtepunkt:

“Normative theories focused on freedom and considered human history as the course towards the realization of freedom. Functional(ist) approaches saw societies as historically improving the ways in which they addressed social problems, a foremost problem being seen as material well-being.” (Wagner, 2022, p. 4)

Probleemide ümberpaigutamine:

“Thus, the task is to develop an interpretive approach to social transformations that sets the identification of socio-political problems in the context of functional requirements and existing power hierarchies. Towards this end, the following account uses the term ‘problem displacement’ to capture the social transformations that have generated climate change.” (Wagner, 2022, p. 6) […] “The concept presupposes: an agent with objectives (or, if in some way imposed, requirements); a problem as a difficulty or impossibility to reach an objective; and then displacement is an action that enables the agent to reach the objective by overcoming the difficulty. The agent could be an individual person, but for current purposes they are more typically a collectivity of some kind (group, organization, class, society, state).” (Wagner, 2022, p. 6)


“At the end of the Second World War, those latter regimes were militarily defeated (Germany and Italy), accommodated (Portugal and Spain) or ‘contained’ (the Soviet Union).” (Wagner, 2022, p. 9)

Varased kriisid:

“In other words, when Western societies faced this combined politico-economicecological crisis during the 1970s, they tried to address it by the tried-and-tested mechanism of problem displacement. The accumulation of debt as well as the hope for technical fixes for environmental issues were ways of ‘buying time’ (Streeck, 2014), without though having at hand any credible ‘imagined futures’ (Beckert, 2016) any longer.” (Wagner, 2022, p. 14)

“In other words, concepts of freedom, material well-being, and of capitalist power asymmetry are all relevant for understanding the rise of our resourceintensive societies that have generated climate change.” (Wagner, 2022, p. 19)

“This paper examines how climate risk affects firm performance, with a focus on the moderating role of corporate social responsibility (CSR). Furthermore, we investigate how national culture and religiosity impact the extent to which CSR alleviates the adverse effects of climate risk.” (Ozkan et al., 2022, p. 1)

Mis on olulisim globaalne oht organisatsioonidele?

“For instance, according to a recent report published by the World Economic Forum (2019), extreme environmental events are the most significant global threats for corporations.” (Ozkan et al., 2022, p. 1)


“We empirically investigate these research questions in an international setting with a large dataset comprising 2063 listed firms in 49 countries over the period 2010−2017.” (Ozkan et al., 2022, p. 2)

Kliimariski indeks:

“Following Huang, Kerstein and Wang (2018), as a measure of climate risk (Climate risk)weuse the climate risk index, which has been published by Greenwatch since 2006 (Eckstein et al., 2019). The global climate risk index evaluates countries for each year based on the occurrence of weatherrelated events such as storms, floods, and temperature extremes. There are four main indicators of the climate risk index, namely the number of deaths, the number of deaths per 100,000 habitants, the sum of losses in $US in real terms, and the losses per unit of GDP.” (Ozkan et al., 2022, p. 7)

Lugemishuvi suurendamiseks:

“We found that climate risk is positively associated with CSR. This suggests that firms respond to climate-related risks by increasing CSR engagement. Furthermore, we provided robust evidence that climate-related extreme events adversely impact firm performance and that firms can mitigate the performance-lowering effects of climate risk by enhancing their CSR performance. Taken together, our main findings lend support to the view that CSR has risk-management benefits.” (Ozkan et al., 2022, p. 17)

Kliimakriisiga tegelemisel on indiviidi käitumisel kriitiline roll:

“In addition to systemic drivers of the anthropogenic climate crisis, there is evidence that individual behaviors have substantial impact on greenhouse gas emissions and environmental degradation (Bleys, Defloor, Van Ootegem, & Verhofstadt, 2018; Dernbach, 2008; Dietz, Gardner, Gilligan, Stern, & Vandenbergh, 2009; Lange & Dewitte, 2019).” (Riordan et al., 2022, p. 1)

Keskkonnateadlik käitumine:

“Pro-environmental behavior has been defined as behavior that intentionally seeks to benefit or reduce harm to the environment (Steg & Vlek, 2009; Stern, 2000b).” (Riordan et al., 2022, p. 1)

Igaühe ökoloogiline jalajälg:

“An alternative approach is to represent pro-environmental behavior based on the estimated impacts of one’s lifestyle on the environment (Bleys et al., 2018; Huddart Kennedy et al., 2015). In this approach, respondents report on a range of specific behaviors (e.g., consumer choices, power usage, modes of transportation), which are then multiplied by objective estimates of CO2 emissions to derive a measure of the person’s “carbon footprint” (Lange & Dewitte, 2019). One such measure is the Ecological Footprint calculator, which expands this concept to include additionally relevant behaviors (e.g., dietary choices, garbage production, water and land usage).” (Riordan et al., 2022, p. 2)

Hedooniline ja eudaimooniline heaolu:

“However, hedonic well-being (i.e., well-being derived from consistent experiences of pleasure and the absence of difficulties) is negatively associated with pro-environmental behavior (Venhoeven et al., 2013). In contrast, eudaimonic well-being is positively associated with pro-environmental behavior (Venhoeven et al., 2013).” (Riordan et al., 2022, p. 2)

Meditatsioon ja eudaimooniline heaolu:

“Meditation training has emerged as a potential means of promoting pro-environmental behavior through its effects on associated intrinsic factors such as environmental attitudes and eudaimonic well-being (Barrett et al., 2016; Geiger, Grossman, & Schrader, 2019; Thiermann & Sheate, 2020b; Wamsler et al., 2021). Among the many forms of meditation, mindfulness meditation has garnered substantial scientific endorsement and widespread interest in popular culture (Goldberg, Riordan, Sun, & Davidson, 2021; Van Dam et al., 2018).” (Riordan et al., 2022, p. 2)

Mediteerimispraktikate pikaajalisel kasutamisel on mõju:

“Long-term meditation training (i.e., ≥ three meditations per week for at least one year) has also been associated with increased pro-environmental motivations and pro-environmental dietary behaviors relative to less experienced meditators and non-meditators (Thiermann, Sheate, & Vercammen, 2020).” (Riordan et al., 2022, p. 2)

Mediteerimise seosed keskkonnateadliku käitumisega:

“Meditation training is also associated with increases in nature connectedness, empathy, and compassion, which represent a potentially critical pathway toward pro-environmental behavior (Thiermann & Sheate, 2020b). It has been theorized that feeling more connected with nature can lead people to feel more empathy and thereby compassion for the environment, which could in turn produce greater intention toward pro-environmental behavior (Thiermann & Sheate, 2020b).” (Riordan et al., 2022, p. 3)

Uuringu eesmärk:

“The current study aimed to investigate the effects of both short- and long-term meditation training on proenvironmental behavior, environmental attitudes, and sustainable well-being.” (Riordan et al., 2022, p. 3)


“A total of 156 adult participants were recruited as part of a larger study on “health and well-being” ([omitted for blind review]). A sample of 31 LTMs were recruited through meditation centers throughout the United States, and through related mailing lists, flyers, and newspaper advertisements. Primary inclusion criteria for LTMs included at least three years of Vipassana and compassion/loving-kindness meditation, with daily practice of at least 30 min, as well as three or more residential meditation retreats lasting at least 5 days each. LTMs reported an average of 9154 lifetime hours of meditation practice (SD = 6976; range = 1439 to 32,613). A non-clinical sample of 125 MNPs were recruited from the general public in and around a mid-sized metropolitan city in the Midwest United States using flyers, online advertisements, and local media.” (Riordan et al., 2022, p. 4)

“At the same time, individual actions contribute substantially to our collective impact on the planet (Dernbach, 2008; Dietz et al., 2009; Semenza et al., 2008). This is both a cause for hope and a call to action; we each can and must take steps to reduce our individual contributions to the climate crisis.” (Riordan et al., 2022, p. 10) […] “The current study addresses these gaps in the literature. The pattern of results – increased pro-environmental behavior associated only with combined short-term, active interventions (MBSR or HEP), and longterm meditation training associated with increased pro-environmental attitudes but not behaviors – provides mixed support for the possibility that meditation training may reduce human impact on the planet.” (Riordan et al., 2022, p. 10)

97% kliimateadlaste konsensuslik seisukoht kliima soojenemise inimtekkelisuse põhjustest ja …

“The consensus among nearly all climate scientists (97%) that human-caused global warming is happening is well-established (Anderegg et al., 2010; Cook et al., 2013, 2016; Oreskes, 2004). Yet, millions of Americans do not yet understand that global warming is happening and human-caused, or that nearly all climate scientists have reached consensus on these facts (Leiserowitz et al., 2022).” (Goldberg et al., 2022, p. 1134)

Tundub, et teadlaste kollektiivsel seisukohal on mõju:

“A meta-analysis by Hornsey et al. (2016) covering over 171 studies across 56 nations identified perceived scientific consensus as one of the strongest correlates with public beliefs about climate change.” (Goldberg et al., 2022, p. 1135)

Argumentatsioon on samuti oluline:

“The extent to which individuals employ motivated reasoning may be contingent on other personal characteristics. For instance, when presented with counter-attitudinal information, people are most likely to engage in directional motivated reasoning when they have sufficient motivation and ability to engage in defensive counterarguing (e.g., Taber & Lodge, 2006).” (Goldberg et al., 2022, p. 1139)

Inimesed ei argumenteeri, vaid uuendavad oma uskumusi …

“The theory of Bayesian learning suggests that, instead of being motivated reasoners, people simply update their beliefs in the direction of the information given (Coppock, 2016). This provides a stark contrast with the motivated reasoning model by proposing instead that people update their beliefs in the direction of the information regardless of whether or not a message is counter-attitudinal.” (Goldberg et al., 2022, p. 1140) […] “Importantly, this perspective is consistent with existing research on messaging about the scientific consensus on climate change. That is, people update their beliefs in line with the consensus regardless of their prior beliefs about global warming, political party, or political ideology (van der Linden, Leiserowitz, & Maibach, 2019; also see Goldberg, van der Linden, Ballew, Rosenthal, Gustafson, & Leiserowitz, 2019).” (Goldberg et al., 2022, p. 1140)

Sõnumites tuleb olla järjekindel:

“Put simply: consensus effects should last longer for people who continue to receive information about the consensus than for people who receive no information or information suggesting there is no consensus.” (Goldberg et al., 2022, p. 1142)

Lugemishuvi suurendamiseks:

“Although the findings provide supportive evidence for the Bayesian learning perspective, this does not rule out the possibility that motivated reasoning is influential in persuasion in general, or in messaging about the scientific consensus on climate change.” (Goldberg et al., 2022, p. 1155)  […] “This study provides evidence that people update their prior climate change beliefs using a Bayesian learning approach: people vary in their existing beliefs, but respond consistently in line with the message provided.” (Goldberg et al., 2022, p. 1156)

Kestliku arengu küsimused avalikus diskursuses kuuldavad. Kuidas, missugustes valdkondades või organisatsioonides, on iseküsimus.

“In today’s world, organisations face an ongoing paradox: relying on (near) slave labour in South-East Asia to satisfy clients’ desire for cheap clothing, or producing locally and thus charging a premium price?” (Griep et al., 2022, p. 1)

Kestliku arengu levinud tähendus:

“In other words, sustainability is traditionally defined as integrating reasonable economic, environmental and social growth opportunities into business strategies (following the same logic as the famous triple-p bottom line that refers to planet, profit and people and which is widely used in CSR; Gallagher et al., 2018).” (Griep et al., 2022, p. 1)

Fokuseerimine … mööda

“That is, it appears that while we have focused extensively on the planet (e.g. recycling, energy reduction and use of natural resources; Ones & Dilchert, 2012)andprofit (e.g. green management and corporate social responsibility; Aguinis & Glavas, 2012) side of sustainability, we have largely left the people to fend for themselves (e.g. Bal & Brookes, 2022; Bissing-Olson et al., 2013; Gallagher et al., 2018).” (Griep et al., 2022, p. 2)

Ärakasutatud …

“A sustainability focus is often (mis)used to build a stronger brand image, attract more customers and make the organisation appear more attractive to current employees, as well as prospective employees (e.g. D ̈ ogl & Holtbrügge, 2014; Puncheva-Michelotti et al., 2018). Mainstream HRM talk and research (e.g. Matthews et al., 2016; Van de Voorde et al., 2012) continue to preach to the choir” (Griep et al., 2022, p. 2)

Mitme näoga dominandid:

“Next, let’s focus on Ikea. Despite the lauding description of the great sustainable environment and workforce, the company was condemned twice in the past few years for (1) illegally surveilling its own employees (e.g. Arama, 2021) and (2) actively trying to bury sexual harassment allegations (e.g. Leplongeon, 2019). Similarly, Amazon has been plagued by class-action lawsuits for their poor working conditions across Europe and North America. Moreover, they routinely pay wages which are barely above the U.S. poverty line, use intrusive surveillance systems to monitor their employees, actively engage in union-busting which allowed them to keep the percentage of unionised employees at around 1% and impose inhumane back-breaking working conditions (Kellogg et al., 2020; Pfeffer, 2016).” (Griep et al., 2022, p. 3)


“With this note in mind, let’s have a look at our suggestions to increase our focus on the people component of sustainability.” (Griep et al., 2022, p. 6)

Inimesed keskmesse!

“Now that we have pronounced sustainability as we knew it dead and have revived it with the necessary inclusion of sustainable employability and have developed a set of concrete suggestions for organisations to ensure that decisions around the people component of sustainability are embedded in our systems and structures (i.e. designed to reflect, support and facilitate a more holistic and dignity-oriented approach to the term ‘sustainability’), we hope that management of the future continues to think about sustainable employability when the next management fad comes around!” (Griep et al., 2022, p. 9)

Kontekstiks: juhtimise õppimine järjest komplekssemas, keerustuvas ja raskestiennustatavas keskkonnas … on’s sel mõtet?

“Management students find themselves in a paradoxical situation when analyzing crises in terms of the current socio-environmental context. They have come to business schools to acquire knowledge and skills that will equip them to organize and control the activities involved in conducting business. However, the organizational environment is increasingly marked by uncertainty and crisis, making prediction and control difficult.” (Mailhot and Lachapelle, 2022, p. 1)

“Uued” valdkonnad õppekavades:

“In recent years, faced with the climate emergency and growing inequalities that have been highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic, business schools have been revising their curricula to include issues such as sustainable development, social responsibility and ethics.” (Mailhot and Lachapelle, 2022, p. 2)

Vastutustundlik juhtimisõpe:

“The notion of Grand Challenges echoes the flourishing literature on responsible management learning and education (RMLE), which claims an urgent need to rethink management education to deal with issues of increasing inequality, human rights, and climate change. The RMLE literature encompasses three pedagogical approaches.” (Mailhot and Lachapelle, 2022, p. 2)

Vastutustundlik hariduskorraldus:

“More recently, regrouping sustainability, responsibility, and ethics under the heading of “responsible management” has been advocated by some scholars (Laasch and Conaway, 2016; Moosmayer et al., 2020). In this view, RMLE can be defined as “the learning and education of a management approach that considers sustainability, responsibility and ethics in its decision-making” (Moosmayer et al., 2020: xxvii).” (Mailhot and Lachapelle, 2022, p. 5)

Pragmatismipõhimõte hariduses:

“It is not a unified theoretical current but rather a philosophy of research and education—a method, which can be characterized by general elements, including: (1) the primacy given to experience; (2) an emphasis on process and emergence; (3) knowledge as fallible and experimental; (4) consideration of the practical effects of knowledge; (5) public discussion of problems and sensitivity to ethics and democracy; (6) alignment toward action and futureoriented meliorism; and (7) pluralism of models and values (Chateauraynaud and Debaz, 2017: 604–606; Simpson and Den Hond, 2022).” (Mailhot and Lachapelle, 2022, p. 8)

John Dewey tekstid pakuvad endiselt märkimisväärselt värskeid perspektiive:

“He moves from the idea of contemplation to that of exercising practical judgment in the context of problematic situations. Transformation is thus at the heart of his theory of judgment, which is both instrumental (means)” (Mailhot and Lachapelle, 2022, p. 9) […] “and ethical (ends).” (Mailhot and Lachapelle, 2022, p. 10)

Lugemishuvi suurendamiseks:

“We argue that the organizational literature on Grand Challenges, with its pragmatist framing, opens a new context for management education. Sustainability education and RMLE have addressed related themes by proposing pedagogical strategies that aim at imbuing students with a sense of accountability vis-à-vis these challenges and by allowing them to analyze the” (Mailhot and Lachapelle, 2022, p. 17) […] “major structural forces responsible for accentuating the crises. Moreover, given the complexity, uncertainty and controversial dimension of societal and environmental problems, we developed a pedagogical approach and strategies that equip students to intervene in indeterminate situations through a collective decision-making process.” (Mailhot and Lachapelle, 2022, p. 18)

Kuigi kestliku arengu küsimused on siinse kodulehe üheks fookusvaldkonnaks on need küsimused jäänud teiste valdkondade varju. Täpselt ei oska öelda, kuid põhjuseks võib olla minu enda uudistevoo seadistused, st linke nt organisatsioonide, juhtimise, politsei ja turvalisuse “külge” on oluliselt rohkem, kui keskkonda puudutavate väljaannete ja autorite kohta. On aga täiesti võimalik, et näiline väiksem tähelepanu on vildakas “tunne”.Siinviidatu võiks huvi pakkuda kõikidele inimestele, sest tegeleb kliimaküsimustega väga praktilisel igapäevasel tasandil: peresuhete ja kultuuri kaudu.


“Climate change is one of the greatest threats to humanity in contemporary society (Milfont, 2010). Thus, one agenda collectively shared among many countries is how to increase pro-environmental behavior to mitigate climate change. To achieve this goal, adopting intra-person perspectives that focus on personal characteristics such as attitudes and beliefs may not be enough because individual behaviors hugely depend on social relationships and surrounding social contexts (Rusbult & Van Lange, 2008).” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1098)

Igaühe käitumine loeb:

“Among different immediate contexts, private households, in particular, account for a large proportion of society’s environmental impact (Fremstad et al., 2018). Household energy consumption has been a major contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions on national and regional scales (Xu et al., 2015).” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1098)

Lastevanemate mõju

“Parents typically take the most important role in the family context, in which they deeply influence their children’s values (Song et al., 2017), attitudes (Dong et al., 2020), and behaviors (McQuillan et al., 2020).” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1099)

Kahesuunaline liiklus:

“The question of how children, especially those in adolescence, can influence parents’ pro-environmental behaviors has also been raised (Gentina & Muratore, 2012), which can be recognized as the process of reverse socialization (i.e., ecological resocialization; Gentina & Muratore, 2012). In the process, children can influence and further transmit their environmental values, attitudes, and knowledge to their parents (Gentina & Singh, 2015).” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1100)

Võimudistants ja individualism:

“Societal power distance refers to the extent to which a society expects and accepts inequality in power (Hofstede, 1984; Winterich & Zhang, 2014). Low societal power distance may motivate individuals to put efforts into minimizing inequality (Hofstede, 1984, 2001; Winterich & Zhang, 2014).” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1103) […] “Societal individualism refers to the extent to which individuals in a society prefer to act as individuals rather than as members of groups (Hofstede, 1984). Specifically, people from collectivistic societies tend to emphasize ingroup identities (e.g., families), whereas those from individualistic societies tend to emphasize personal goals and values (Triandis, 2001).” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1103)

Vihje metoodikale:

“To explore the relationships between familiarity with climate change and pro-environmental behaviors in parent–adolescent dyads, we conducted the actor–partner interdependence model (APIM; Cook & Kenny, 2005). It is a statistical method that accounts for the interdependent nature of family member pairs (Cook & Kenny, 2005).” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1105)

“We found that parents’ familiarity with climate change was associated with adolescents’ pro-environmental behaviors, as found in 10 out of 14 societies in the present study.” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1119)

Võimudistants ja individualism …

“In the present study, we found that societal power distance and individualism moderated the parent-adolescent dyadic effects on pro-environmental behaviors. Specifically, low societal power distance and high societal individualism strengthened the positive relationship between parents’ familiarity with climate change and adolescents’ pro-environmental behaviors.” (Xia and Li, 2022, p. 1120)

Püüan hoiduda siinses voos raamatutele viitamast ja siinviidatu on üks väheste, kuid arvatavasti väärib oma kohta vaidlusteta.Kliimaküsimustest mööda vaatamine on võimalik ilmselt sotsiaalselt pimedal ning vähegi empaatilisel inimesel on siin sügavad huvid.

Kontekstiks (eriti neile, kelle arvates kliimaküsimused on tühised):

“The pre-industrial era was marked by climatic periods of varying intensity, the most well-known being the Roman Climatic Optimum, the Little Ice Age, and the Medieval Warm Period (McCormick et al., 2012;Neukom et al., 2019). Environmental history tells us that these episodes were a key factor in the rise and fall of kingdoms and even entire civilizations.” (“Green Human Resource Management Research: Issues, Trends, and Challenges”, 2022, p. 1)

“Human influence involves the activity of two main agents: organizations and households. Evidence shows that organizational activities are generally considered to have a greater impact on the natural environment. A good example of this is daily waste generation, with the volume of waste generated by the industrial sector being incomparably higher than the amount produced by households (source: https://www.futura-sciences.com/).” (“Green Human Resource Management Research: Issues, Trends, and Challenges”, 2022, p. 2)

“The publication of a collection edited by Walter Wehrmeyer in (1996)2 entitled Greening People: Human Resources and Environmental Management marked the beginning of research on the incorporation of environmental matters into human resource management practices. Interest in the field of green human resource management (GHRM) has grown significantly in recent years.” (“Green Human Resource Management Research: Issues, Trends, and Challenges”, 2022, p. 2)

Miks seda kogumikku oleks kasulik lugeda:

“In short, huge advances have been made since the Wehrmeyer volume. However, a closer examination of the development of the new field shows that while some areas are reaching a degree of conceptual maturity (thus paving the way for a new phase of development focused on the consolidation of existing knowledge), others have yet to realize their full heuristic potential. Through the range of topics considered in the following chapters, this book aims to add substantially to the vast existing literature.” (“Green Human Resource Management Research: Issues, Trends, and Challenges”, 2022, p. 3)

“Put differently, GHRM can be seen as an instrument in the fight against climate change in that it enables organizations to put in place measures designed to repair the environmental damage caused by industrial activities and prevent environmental degradation.” (“Green Human Resource Management Research: Issues, Trends, and Challenges”, 2022, p. 4)

Siinviidatud vabalevis olev tekst võiks huvi pakkuda kõikidele inimestele. Võib olla organisatsioonihuvilistel on väike eelis, sest tegemist on organisatsioonide valdkonna ühe mõjukama ajakirjaga, kus kasutatav terminoloogia ja mõistestik ehk kergemini mõistetav neile, kes selle valdkonnaga puutumuses. Samal ajal on rõhuasetused siiski sedavõrd kõikehaaravad, et raskusi ei tohiks tekkida kellelgi. Küll aga on tekstil pakkuda mõndagi.


“As a daily and almost taken-for-granted practice, our academic writing continuously deserves to be ‘explored, investigated, and questioned’ (Cloutier, 2016: 69). Could we, organisational researchers, then, write to critique and disrupt the seemingly rigid norms around ‘standard’ hu-man-centred academic writing – the kind of disembodied, distant, sterile and cleaned-up writing that conforms to a patriarchal discourse (Ahonen et al., 2020; Höpfl, 2000), upholds binaries, and firmly supports human superiority over other living beings in the world (for a critique, see Benozzo et al., 2013; Fotaki and Harding, 2018; McMurray and Pullen, 2020)?” (Huopalainen, 2022, p. 960)

Teise loomad on …

“Animals continue to be the silenced, dominated, and relatively overlooked agents in our field, and simplistic human/animal dichotomies are typically upheld in much of our field’s scholarly writing (Hamilton and Taylor, 2013, 2017).” (Huopalainen, 2022, p. 960)

Inimeste ja teiste loomade sidumine akadeemilises kirjutamises:

“By recognising the relatedness of humans and nonhuman animals in academic writing practices, I seek novel and creative means to understand and express the complexity of multispecies encounters, relational ethics and humanimal relations in organisational life.” (Huopalainen, 2022, p. 961) […] “Originally developed within the field of cultural studies (Haraway, 2003, 2008; McHugh, 2012), feminist dog-writing represents a form of entangled humanimal writing that ‘involves playful relational co-constitution with nonhuman Others’ (Sayers, 2016: 11).” (Huopalainen, 2022, p. 961)

Autori ambitsioon:

“I seek to decenter human agency and embrace openness, intra-action and relational co-constitution with companion canines. By doing so, I further problematise an ‘ideology of anthroparchy’3 (Clarke and Knights, 2020: 16) that is typically reproduced in much scholarly writing.” (Huopalainen, 2022, p. 961)

Häirivad mõttekäigud?

“I emphasise everyday ethical encounters with animal life worlds in the more-than-human world. By highlighting the intra-actions (Barad, 2003, 2007) and non-oppositional connections between different bodies and materialities – the multispecies assemblages (Haraway, 2008) – I adopt posthumanist approaches that disturb the taken-forgrantedness of established dualisms (human/animal, nature/culture, self/other) and invite trans-corporeal thinking across bodies (Alaimo, 2008) by emphasising their interconnections.” (Huopalainen, 2022, p. 962)

Mitteinimesed ja rohkem-kui-inimesed:

“As human subjects, we inevitably act, move, experience and become with in co-existence with the non-humans (Latour, 2005) and more-than-humans (Braidotti, 2006) around us.” (Huopalainen, 2022, p. 962)

Joaquin Phoenix:

“‘We feel entitled to artificially inseminate a cow and steal her baby, even though her cries of anguish are unmistakable. Then we take her milk that’s intended for her calf and we put it in our coffee and our cereal’, Phoenix aptly reminded us.” (Huopalainen, 2022, p. 963)

Ontoloogiline lähtepunk peab muutuma, kuid uurida “teisiti”:

“Doing research ‘differently’ (St. Pierre, 1997) requires new ontological positioning and novel methodologies. The post-qualitative movement calls for re-thinking our relationship with the surrounding world and a deconstruction of ‘conventional humanist qualitative methodology’ (St. Pierre, 2011, 2013), which has become standardised, predictable and static.” (Huopalainen, 2022, p. 964)

“The deeply troubling, unethical and unsustainable ways in which humans have interacted with other animals, ecosystems, and entire biospheres, both institutionally and individually, have constructed major catalysts behind the current COVID-19 pandemic and behind climate change. We need to care about the more-than-human world differently, re-negotiate existing interspecies relations, and re-consider the place of the human in relation to nature and other animals not to destroy our planet.” (Huopalainen, 2022, p. 973)

Siinviidatud vabalevis olev tekst leidis oma koha peamiselt põhjusel, et adresseerib mitmeid keskkonnaalaseid teadmisi puudutavaid aspekte organisatsioonis, mida mitmel pool ei tunnistata praktikate tasandil või ei teada. Tekst võiks siiski huvi pakkuda kõikidele, kel vähegi huvi kestliku arengu ja keskkonnaküsimuste vastu.


“Knowledge is an intangible and abstract asset free from the tangible world and plays an essential role in the smooth functioning of firms (Fu et al., 2022). Considering the dynamic nature of the business world (Kumari et al., 2021), it is commonly believed that firms that could manage the knowledge embedded in their operations would lead others (Aamir et al., 2021), and failure to do so can overturn the game (Shahzad et al., 2020).” (Yu et al., 2022, p. 1)

Probleem ja eesmärk:

“The need for green knowledge has increased significantly based on environmental challenges. The current study aims to shed light on the rarely explored concept of GKM by developing and validating an instrument for GKM by following a mix-method approach where quantitative and qualitative methods are integrated.” (Yu et al., 2022, p. 1)

Kolme keskset valdkonda:

“Particularly new studies highlight the significant impact of combining these factors on the economy, environment, and society, which are the critical components of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNDP, 2021). These three domains are interlinked and support each other. For instance, knowledge facilitates individuals and organizations to boost their innovation capabilities (Chamba-Rueda et al., 2021).” (Yu et al., 2022, p. 2)

Konkurentsieelise saamiseks …

“By applying green knowledge, organizations can introduce novel ideas, processes, and technologies to create a competitive advantage.” (Yu et al., 2022, p. 3)

“Organizational structure should enable employees to acquire pro-environmental knowledge from internal and external aspects. The newly acquired knowledge should be appraised objectively so that a clear understanding of the material can be created and the new information can be integrated into the framework of existing knowledge.” (Yu et al., 2022, p. 5)
