Some of the greatest challenges for today's architecture are multifunctionality, energy saving and sustainability — problems that insects have partially solved during their evolution. From biomimetics in architecture design and materials, to decomposition of waste management and intelligent algorithms to reduce congestion, insects are an unlimited source of inspiration for innovations to advance SDGs 11 and 12.

The best-documented example of a solution provided by insects to address the SDGs is the value chains of insect farming as feed and food. In countries recovering from conflict, agricultural development should focus on restoring food production by smallholder farmers (SDG 1 and 2), improving their socio-economic position (SDG 8), and contributing to peace (SDG 16).

Ecosystem services, the benefits nature provides to people, underpin all dimensions of human wellbeing. It is therefore crucial to integrate them into strategies for achieving SDGs, in particular those related to agriculture and health (SDGs 1, 2, 3).

This paper discusses the challenges in safely re-opening indoor sport centres and the measures already suggested by others to partly tackle these challenges. It also elaborates three potential additional measures and based on these additional measures, it suggests the concept of a certificate of equivalence that could allow indoor sports centers with such a certificate to re-open safely and more rapidly. It also attempts to stimulate increased preparedness of indoor sports centers that should allow them to remain open safely during potential next waves of SARS-CoV-2 as well as future pandemics. This contributes to SDGs 3, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 16.
