MAKING A BETTER WORLD
WHAT would your ideal world look like? Resurgence & Ecologist readers yearn for a better world – and our columns regularly resound with our writers’ (and readers’) proposals, arguments and exhortations, whatever the topic.
Our new Keynotes article, by Nicole Pohl, is a reminder of the fascination we have with “ideal” societies. Five hundred years since Thomas More wrote Utopia, Nicole Pohl sketches the history of utopianism, and its hold on us.
The ‘Brexit’ vote in June’s referendum for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union has also inspired writers to discuss what kind of society they want. We try to move the debate forward. Jonathon Porritt issues a call to the Green movement, while Paul Kingsnorth proclaims the values of localism. Helena Norberg-Hodge puts the debate into a global context, and Sarah Beattie-Smith reports from Scotland.
Elsewhere, we salute other idealists. Oliver Tickell interviews John Flett, a remarkable farmer working to restore food diversity. Vandana Shiva reports on how that diversity is under new threats. And in a moving poem, Matt Harvey reflects on the Quaker tradition, that “there’s something of God in everyone.”
Oscar Wilde said of Utopia that “when Humanity lands there, it looks out, and seeing a better country, sets sail.” We hope the new issue of Resurgence & Ecologist is good company on that journey.
