Welcome to our 50th anniversary issue. Resurgence was first published as a radical peace magazine amid the changing landscape of the 1960s. A small independent publication, Resurgence embraced a wider, holistic worldview, eschewing the traditional politics of left versus right, or 'biggest is best', to take up issues of social justice, spirituality and the arts, as well as our relations with Nature and the wider environment.

In May/June 2016 issue of Resurgence & Ecologist, we reflect on the history of this unique magazine and its role throughout 50 years of environmental changes. We profile key figures in the Resurgence story, take a look at the early days of the environmental movement and revisit E.F. Schumacher's classic essay 'Buddhist Economics'.

We also look to the future, with a feature on The Challenges Ahead, in which we asked key environmental campaigners to answer the question 'What's next?'. Plus, Leo Johnson shares a vision of utopia; John Francis profiles artist Jon Schueler; and Poetry Editor, Peter Abbs, enjoys the inaugural work of Irish poet Jane Clarke.

Resurgence & Ecologist has helped to inspire new ways of thinking and living creatively for fifty years. We hope you will find much to inspire you in our May/June issue.
