Det europæiske forår er et dystopisk billede af Europas fremtid. Vi følger fire mennesker i begyndelsen af et nyt årtusinde. Lolland er blevet opkøbt af et internationalt konsortium, og nu skal øen omdannes til et økologisk drømmeland, hvor rige mennesker kan nyde lokale råvarer og en smuk – og slet ikke så naturlig – natur. For at bevare idyllen i Europa sætter danskerne hårdt ind over for terror, og med militærets hjælp deporteres samtlige urostiftere og utilpassede med muslimsk baggrund til en containerby i Mozambique. Forfatteren eksperimenterer med grænserne for, hvad man kan tillade sig i kunstens navn og med etikkens sande væsen. Idealer, udnyttelse og realitet går hånd i hånd i denne tankevækkende roman, som tvinger læseren til at forholde sig til store dilemmaer, som trods deres fiktive afsæt slet ikke føles langt væk fra den verden, vi lever i.
This book presents an interplay of imaginative memoir-telling, action research data and future projection that reminds and inspires experiences academics, researchers, professionals, as well as a wider public to recognize the fundamental importance and the impellent need for more and better work in favour of true political and societal recognition of the needs and rights of children to play freely, to participate, to live fully and enjoy their neighbourhoods and cities, and to imagine and construct alternative futures, together with adults. The book's abundant spoken dialogue is, in effect, storytelling between children (and youth) on their own and with adults (especially the elderly). It conveys an appreciation of children's special capacities to think critically about their everyday places-and the greater world around them-and to develop solutions (or 'projects') for the problems they identify. This book serves an effective catalyst for stimulating rich discussion of the theoretical and practical bases of the many themes, or areas of study, which are treated in the story.
