Here's a video for the tiny niche of Dutch-speaking-long-attention-span-visitors of this website. Some months ago the Rotterdam Think Café organized a Next Nature night featuring your dearest long-standing nextnature connoisseur. Rather than a lecture, the event was an improvised conversation on next nature in response to images selected by the organizers. Slow video alert!
Next Nature Night in Rotterdam
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.Comment
