Nature Positive Impact
In this issue we put the spotlight on business as a catalyst for change with the theme ‘Nature Positive Impact’ and explore how ecology and people should be at the heart of the economy. In her article, Sophie Wisbrun-Overakker explains why business needs to recognise the interconnectedness of all things, and business guru Paul Polman, co-author of the book Net Positive, looks at how business can and must perform within planetary boundaries.
The Ecologist pages feature a report from Matthew Traver on the restoration of a desiccated landscape that was once the Aral Sea into a verdant forest, complete with honey gardens, and in Connected Life, Annabel Heseltine travels to Socotra in the north-west Indian Ocean and discovers the plight of the dragon’s blood tree.
In The Slow Read, political writer Mark Seddon explores the rise of a new world order. He looks at the quiet revolution shifting the power away from the US and over to China and the other BRICS countries, which is something change-makers cannot afford to ignore.
In Wisdom and Wellbeing, Stephanie Boxall discovers how we can easily deepen our relationship with Nature simply by learning to ‘read’ the clues and signs around us. Our Art & Culture pages introduce a collection of Wild Writings, and in Reviews, Satish Kumar pays tribute to three high-profile authors – Isabella Tree, Charlie Burrell and Ben Goldsmith – pioneers of the growing movement for rewilding, which is fast gaining traction.
