May/June 2012

Welcome front cover
Catalysts for Change

In the new issue of Resurgence we bring together authors and ideas that inspire change and look at the arts as a springboard for transformation in human consciousness.

We profile the extraordinary talent of David Hockney, consider the impact of his recent exhibition and discover how an appreciation of landscape has shaped his work.

Paul Hawken takes a look at the work of photographer Chris Jordan — exposing waste in all its forms; Fritjof Capra explains why ecoliteracy is critical to our future and Vandana Shiva challenges India's proposed Seed Law.

Plus, News from the Grass Roots — taking a look at projects across the globe that are changing lives. Here’s a selection of articles and new features from the new issue, with links to articles that you can read in full online.

Museums of happinessMuseums of Happiness

Museums are central to the integrity of our communities and have a key role to play in the future wellbeing of people and planet.

They are places of connection that can help create new perspectives and values in society – putting cooperation and stewardship at the forefront rather than behind economic wellbeing.

Illustration by WozniakEcological Literacy

Deep ecology recognises the intrinsic value of all living things – seeing nature as an intricate web of which humans are just one part.

Fritjof Capra explains why we need a radical revolution in education and why our understanding of ecological literacy might just determine our fate as a species.

BadgersA Sense of Place

"There’s great excitement in spring when it starts to blossom, when the light changes. I call that “action week”. And I think about the fact that hawthorn has been there for so long that my ancestors would have looked at it and enjoyed it too."

David Hockney talks about his paintings, local landscapes and why we should all shout louder to protect the countryside from development.
