Description The paper is based on a linguistic and discursive analysis of interviews recorded as part of two current projects of the 2050 Institute, the first of which was a survey of Czech farmers on whose land the critically endangered little owl resides, and the second worked with focus groups on the topic of the green transformation of the Czech Republic and the EU. It will focus on distinctive binary oppositions and conceptual metaphors reflecting and shaping the relationship to nature, on linguistic images of the farmer, the economic landscape and the position of the Czech Republic within Europe and the world. It will also look at the associations and stereotypes that key concepts of green transformation (e.g. green deal x destiny, no-growth, frugality, transparency, fair transformation) evoked in the participants of the focus groups.
