This 14th multi-disciplinary conference of the Ghent University Africa Platform hopes to showcase how scientists, policy makers, engineers, artists, writers, opinion makers and educators anticipate challenges resulting from climate change, and reflect on alternative trajectories of societal transformation. Therefore its principal focus is on the impact of climate change on African cultures, landscapes and societies.
Because of Covid-19 regulations, we have decided to go for a fully online version of our annual symposium. We will use specific software to provide for - formal and informal - online interaction with the paper and poster presenters and with fellow colleagues. In this way we hope that the conference will still turn out to be an enriching and inspiring event.
