An escalator to the top of the hill, for people who like nature but don't like to hike. This photo was taken at the Montjuïc in Barcelona two years ago. See the original photo here.

Well, just take into account that these (because there are many, not just that one in the picture) escalators were constructed for the 1992 olimpic games... and many people, as old people, had to arrive to the olimpic stadium, but had problems for walking long distances... Nowadays are still used for many people, to go to the stadium and around... Is not a bad idea... For sure, better than use the car!

Awesome! I'd absolutely love to prefer this great innovation!

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
