Intrinsic Values

In the 45th anniversary year of Resurgence, we highlight the importance of core values that serve people and the planet. Our March/April issue celebrates the champions of intrinsic values who have contributed to Resurgence over the years, including Caroline Lucas, Vandana Shiva, Annie Lennox and Václav Havel. Feature articles include HRH The Prince of Wales on Islam and the Environment, and Rowan Williams on Moral Housekeeping.
