In the current issue:

For 50 years, Resurgence & Ecologist has been making connections - drawing together the causes we hold to be important, and exploring how they are related. That's very much the theme for our July/August issue.

Climate change, tax justice, transparency, empowering women, environmental protection and social justice are intrinsically linked. As Rowan Williams highlights in his Keynotes article 'Just Join the Dots', healing the planet must go hand in hand with resolving social and political problems.

In this issue, Charles Eisenstein reminds us that no action, however small, is insignificant; Adrian Cooper gives an account of neighbours coming together to create green sites in their town; Danny Dorling links our patterns of consumption with their impact on the environment; and Liza Lort-Phillips takes action in response to the refugee crisis on the Greek islands.

Elsewhere, we celebrate the paintings of Georgia O'Keeffe, the poetry of Emily Dickinson and the extraordinary etchings, harnessing the energy of the sun, of the artist Roger Ackling.
