The article also presents results from using this method in four workshops in the Barents region (northern Fennoscandia and northwest Russia) and relates these results to elements of the global narratives.

The overarching question explored is: What future changes may influence the Barents region economically, environmentally and socially within the perspective of one to two generations? The question addresses a gap in knowledge about how the interaction among different drivers of change may affect adaptation action at the local level in general and in this region in particular.

Based on this empirical material, the specific question for this paper is what further perspectives the engagement with local and regional actors can bring to narratives about global change.
