This paper reports and reflects on the outcomes of an interdisciplinary collaborative project. Inge-Marie Svensson works at the University of Malmö in the teacher education in the department of Nature, environment and learning. Gunnilla Welwert also works at the teacher education in Malmö in the department on Culture, language and media. The project has two different parts. One part is the Barbara Petchenik Award which is a drawing competition that is supposed to encourage children´s creative description of the world in a graphic art. Through this competition they want to increase children´s awareness about maps and protect the environment. The other part is about a enkätundersökning. In the autumn 2012 students in Malmö University asked 150 pupils in four different schools in Scania about their opinion of the concept place. Some other students asked pupils from seven different schools in Scania to draw a picture within the theme “My place in the today´s world”.
