What are planetary boundaries? And do they have a relationship with the current outbreak of the coronavirus? Earth System Scientist Will Steffen was invited to Groningen in April to speak during the Sustainable Society Symposium about planetary boundaries and the Anthropocene. The symposium has been postponed to October 2020, but we already asked him some questions about his work on planetary boundaries. Studium Generale selected a few on their blog.
