This is now not about saving our planet. It’s about saving ourselves. With or without us, the natural world will rebuild. In the 30 years since the evacuation of Chernobyl, the wild has reclaimed the space, the forest has taken over the city. It’s a sanctuary for wild animals that are very rare elsewhere. It’s a powerful evidence that no matter how big our mistakes, nature will overcome them. We humans can’t presume the same. We are the smartest creatures that have ever lived, but to continue we require more than intelligence. We require wisdom. We alone are able to imagine the future. There’s a chance of us to make amends and manage our impact. And become in balance with nature. We know how to create the perfect home for ourselves, a rich, healthy home, full of magic.
