NEW THINKING FOR OUR FUTURE
There is another way. Resurgence & Ecologist readers are well aware of the failings of mainstream economic thinking -- unceasing economic “growth” is destroying the natural environment while dislocating human societies and relationships. So in our new May/June issue, we explore some of the alternatives – economics for people and the planet – across an entire range of issues.
Tim Jackson is one of Britain’s leading economists offering an alternative to mainstream thinking. In his keynote article, he discusses some principles for prosperity without growth.
“Questioning growth is deemed to be the act of lunatics, idealists and revolutionaries,” Professor Jackson says, “but question it we must... Prosperity for the few founded on ecological destruction and persistent social injustice is no foundation for a civilised society.” These principles have informed Resurgence since our foundation half a century ago, and we continue to work for them.
So elsewhere in this issue, the Barcelona-based activist Filka Sekulova explains the ideas of the degrowth movement, Scilla Elsworthy outlines the economics of peace, Vivian Woodell talks about the value of cooperatives, and Jon and David Ehrenfeld review low-tech solutions to environmental threats.
Our other features also echo the positive and the alternative, from Brazilian textile artist Nara Guichon, recycling the ocean’s detritus, to Alice Sharp, curating new works that explore our relationship with the sea. And as always, the beautiful artwork that distinguishes every issue of Resurgence & Ecologist is echoed in our poetry and books reviews: food for the body, mind and soul.
