Bert De Somviele (BOS+ director) wrote an opinion piece for VRT News about the COVID-19 pandemic and our planet's resilience. This article was co-signed by Luc Janssens de Bisthoven (CEBioS coordinator), among others. 

It argues that this crisis came about because people were far too reckless with nature, that the resilience of our planet is gone and that we urgently need to restore it.
