Indeed. Think for instance of organic food production, which is currently perceived as ‘natural’, while 10.000 years ago – when human beings began to domesticate plants and animals, rather than relying on hunting and gathering to obtain food – farming was a phenomenon of ‘next nature’.

This transition is all about acceptance and time. What we like to indicate with next nature today, will be the habitual nature of tomorrow.

So how do we go from next nature to old nature? Nuclear winter?

What is your view on the coronavirus?

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.
