Benefits beyond the virus crisis?

„We’re all part of the same ecosystem. This is a global issue“ says Dennis Caroll, a US virologist.
Facing the Corona crisis, this thinking slowly enters the mainstream. To those having worked on the Convention on Biological Diversity, the sister convention of the Climate Change Convention and its inherent ecosystem approach, this is shared knowledge since decades. When I was working with the UN end of the 90s/early 2000s, we tried to rub our interdependency into delegates’ thinking, without much success. If the virus crises leads to another understanding and related activities with regard to our behaviour on a higher level, maybe it even was worth it from the hindsight. Let us be hopeful and look at new horizons.
