what can we learn from covid-19 and where do we go now?

  • The Covid-19 crisis has had two enormous and related consequences: 1) It brought much of human activity to a halt and 2) It has given nature a respite from human activity.  Both provide an opportunity to reset society’s priorities and to head in a different direction.

    Confrontation with the reality of a new epidemic has subdued political and economic imperatives to scientific reality.  In a time of accusations of fake media, deep conspiracies, and relentless trolls, scientists have regained authoritative prominence.  Confined and restricted from normal lifestyles, people have had to confront important questions about purpose, values, opportunities, and constraints in the way we as individuals and societies live.

    Nature – air, water, soil, energy, biodiversity – is the very source of our lives and well-being, but in the 20th century, humanity changed from rural agricultural living to inhabitants of big cities where our highest priority became our jobs.  And so, the economy assumed greatest prominence in our values and we failed to ask the most important questions about this human creation called the economy, namely:

    -what is an economy for?
    -where does nature fit in an economy?
    -what is the value of nature and the spiritual?
    -what are the limits?
    -how much is enough?
    -are we happier with the sheer quantity of consumer items?

    This is our moment to reset our priorities. In a post Covid-19 World, let’s continue to allow her to recover and put our efforts into living green and creating jobs that restore Earth’s sustainable productivity.
