The next chapter


Clarity in a complex and changing world

The breadth, depth and pace of change in the world can be bewildering. Polis offers a joined-up approach, setting the big issues within a broader context to help you understand what is happening.


Building awareness of problems and solutions

We focus on challenges facing people and place, and explore developments that can improve the state of the world.


Inform, engage and inspire

Polis aims to provide engaging and relevant content to a broad community. We use clear language and avoid jargon.

“The fact is that no species has ever had such wholesale control over anything on Earth, living or dead, as we now have. That lays upon us, whether we like it or not, an awesome responsibility.”
