The Seven Wonders of Nature

Natural Seven Wonders

After setting up the biggest online voting poll ever for electing seven new wonders of the world, the swiss-canadian filmmaker Bernard Weber set up a new poll: the election of seven new wonders of nature on www.natural7wonders.com.

To my humble opinion, this contest is not so much about nature itself - nature can deal with herself, she doesn't need our approvement. This whole thing is much more about the image of nature. Because how on earth could I have any judgement upon all these natural sites that I never have visited? How should I rate the Grand Canyon above the Okavango river or even above the little bush behind the house I grew up that I used to play in? And what's next? The New Seven Wonders of the Universe?

We dont really want to conserve nature.

We want to conserve our image of nature.

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
