We must now take action!“ – Doing future in the context of the EU LEADER programme (working title)

"In 2030 we will be less, older and more colourful" - Discourses on demographic change refer to the constitution of society in the future, which at the same time calls for action in the present. Demographic change often serves as a basis for action in political development programs such as in the LEADER program of the European Union, which aims at giving local actors the means to develop projects for solving societal challenges. At the example of one LEADER project in three different regions, the research project explores ethnographically, how the technologies of the LEADER program impact on the local actors’ practices of working on the future, which wishes, imaginations and narratives of a future communal live in rural regions mobilise the actions, and how the type of participation in the LEADER program influences the practices of ‘doing future’. The study thus takes a practice theoretical perspective on future practice by building upon the Anthropology of the Future. In line with the Anthropology of Policy, the LEADER policy is considered to have agency that will be followed ethnographically. The research should contribute to an understanding of the impact of European policy on everyday practice and eventually highlight the role of local actors in rural regions in facing global and future-oriented challenges.
