WE CAN BE HEROES
The political outlook may seem gloomy, and we are all aware of the threats to our environment and the challenges of obtaining social justice, but inspiration shines through the new,
September/October issue of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine.
In our last issue, inspired by Larry Nielsen’s profiles of eight prominent conservationists, we asked readers: who would you nominate as your Heroes for Nature? Responses have ranged widely – from Octavia Hill, the Victorian campaigner who became one of the founders of the National Trust, to Berta Cáceres, the Indigenous peoples’ rights campaigner assassinated in Honduras last year. Inspirational figures all.
But it is not only those who achieve national or international recognition who inspire us. Photographer Walter Lewis documented the many people working on small plots to provide food to local communities while restoring the land, and we hear about James Thornton, one of the lawyers opening new fronts against governments who fail to enforce environmental laws. And in an exclusive interview, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, one of Tibetan Buddhism’s senior figures, talks about the environmental initiatives his spiritual beliefs have inspired.
In our arts pages Rogan Wolf tells of his scheme to bring inspiring, consoling poetry to some of our society’s loneliest places. In our reviews section, Jonathon Porritt finds the writings of Kirkpatrick Sale on the worth of small and decentralised communities reinvigorating. And Kate Raworth calls for a new economics that is both socially just and environmentally sustainable.
We hope you enjoy this issue and are inspired to action.
