In the current issue

The March/April issue of Resurgence & Ecologist reaffirms our commitment to non-violence. Mark Kurlansky takes a journey through the history of nonviolence and concludes that nonviolent campaigns can succeed in bringing about peaceful political change and facilitate social justice, even in these troubled times.

Taking on a different challenge, Ros Coward exposes the truth behind the fashion industry and the wider impact of 'junk fashion'. Now is the time to end our obsession with throw-away clothes and move towards a more sustainable model.

In the world of conservation, Fiona Reynolds looks at conservation campaigning and why nature and beauty are so essential, not just for survival, but for spiritual wellbeing. Thembi Mutch profiles Janet Maro, an agricultural activist in Tanzania whose work is helping small farmers improve their lives through sustainable practices. Susan Canney, a British biologist working in Mali, reports on how cooperative conservation is helping to save elephants from poaching in a country trying to overcome terrorism and political turmoil.

The March/April 2017 issue also includes a rich mix of news, arts and book reviews, with coverage on the latest David Hockney exhibition at Tate Britain, an update on solar technology; the need to protect sacred mountains; and a special feature on 'Handmade: Stories of Strength to Share through Recipes', a project to share stories and recipes from war-torn Sri Lankan.

We hope you will enjoy the featured articles from our March/April issue, take time to explore the website and find out more about Resurgence & Ecologist magazine.
