Inside the Polycrisis. The Possible Necessary

Ten years after the first issue of Techne journal – “Beyond the crisis” – we are still and deeply “inside the crisis”. The changeability and growing complexity of socio-economic and climatic-environmental scenarios are accentuated by the pandemic emergency and they highlight a persistent and structural polycrisis condition, determining an “evolutionary ridge” that questions the categories of knowledge and relationships between humanity, environment and technological development. The polydimensionality of the risk makes the very idea of crisis inadequate, requiring necessary metamorphoses of the housing and socio-economic contexts.
