What Comes Next?

In this issue, Bill McKibben, Jonathon Porritt, Margaret Atwood and Vandana Shiva tell us why they are still hopeful of a positive outcome for the planet and for humankind.

Wynn JonesPainter as Storyteller

The basic human need for the mythic and sacred is too often dismissed as the negligible by-product of misfiring chemical connections within our heads. Walk into painter Wynn Jones’s studio though, and you will see this is not the case.
