Welcome front cover
A New Moral Compass

Resurgence ushers in the New Year with a bold statement of support for the Occupy movement and the demands for social justice across the globe. In the January/February issue, we examine the collapse of the old and bankrupt values of the developed world and the emergence of a new society with a New Moral Compass.

We look too at greener solutions for our energy, land and water challenges and feature an inspiring, in-depth keynotes piece by international lawyer and activist, Polly Higgins, who explains her sky-rocketing campaign to get Ecocide adopted as an international crime.

geeseMaking Life More Meaningful

It’s time to challenge the winner-takes-all mindset. Ed Mayo demonstrates that it’s not competition and greed that make the world go around – it’s cooperation and caring.

Even the economists themselves are tearing up the rulebook of neo-liberal market competition!
