Breathing well at the wastelands? Indoor climate change in schools and the daily lives of arctic children is a chapter by Tuure Tammi. In his chapter he creates a vision about the indoors, and especially indoor-air, as a natural-cultural entanglement. He does this by looking at “mold schools” as an example of entanglement where indoor-air materializes as an issue of environmental health. When concerning children, healthy indoor-air becomes even more important. Tuure discusses how adults take children into consideration and how the children are and can be agents in the matter at hand. He points out that children in many ways are considered as ‘generalized subjects’ even though they are seen to ‘practice their environment’. Tuure shows different ways in which humans are tangled with microbes and how this entanglement is changed through technologies. He concludes by stating how the phenomenon of “mold schools” shows the ways in which nature remains inside buildings and how this materialization matters to children in different ways.
