PolyCIVIS: Confronting the Polycrisis in Europe and Africa through Research, Policy and Education

PolyCIVIS is a Euro - African collaboration that brings to the forefront the global polycrisis, allowing a better understanding of the impacts of several concurrent major societal crises challenging the world in the form of a polycrisis.

In the wake of the global polycrisis, urgent challenges have emerged, prompting PolyCIVIS to take action. Our initiative is dedicated to addressing these pressing global issues and their interconnected consequences. We will look at challenges such as the escalating economic and social disparities, environmental degradation, and the overarching climate crisis.
