When it comes to the most discussed, debated and dissected existential risks of our time, climate change has reigned supreme. Then came the coronavirus pandemic. While the ultimate depth and longevity of the pandemic will likely differ from climate, the current situation offers parallels in terms of a visible demonstration of large-scale risks to health, the economy and our daily way of life.
We hope that sound social behaviours and scientific development allow us to stabilise and manage the coronavirus as much as possible. But regardless, the pandemic will have a long-lasting impact on how we look at the world, our psyche and our roles within it.
