The future workshop is divided into three main phases: a critique phase, a utopian phase and an implementation phase. In the critique phase, participants are asked to formulate negative criticism about their working lives. They were allowed to criticise all parts of a specific issue, although the other participants are not allowed to discuss the validity of others’ critique. If a participant disagrees with a statement, he/she can pose a counter critique. Statements such as: ‘breaks becomes shorter and shorter’, ‘it is stressful not to know one’s working hours the following week’, ‘we are constantly changing managers’ and ‘the buses are worn out’, are all examples of criticisms expressed and subsequently noted on flipcharts.

Who will use our results? Should our results aim at change? This reflexive approach, first and foremost, requires us to be transparent and explicit, Malene Freudendal-Pedersen et al. 27 and this is essential if the research produced should be open for utilisation by others. In addition, the clear visibility and rationale for certain courses of action will have a direct impact on the clarity of the research conclusions. In order to make reflexive choices, we work with a number of preconceptions.

The choices they make have a range of environmental and social consequences that the individual may be more or less aware of and reflective about. The following empirical work has been gathered in the ecological village Dyssekilde, which is located 50 km from Copenhagen. The information was gathered through in-depth, qualitative, individual interviews and focus group interviews. The case was chosen from a preconception that the residents of Dyssekilde – because of their conscious choice to live in an eco-village – were aware of the environmental consequences of late modern lives and actions.
