Welcome front cover
The Ecozoic Era

The July/August issue of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine celebrates eco-theologian Thomas Berry’s idea of the Ecozoic Era — meaning a new phase where humanity not only sets about repairing the damage it has inflicted on the natural world but also enters a new era that is respectful of Nature, self-renewing and ecologically-sustainable.

That sense of a respect for Nature and a sadness over what has already been lost are just two of the strong sentiments captured in the articles written by the winners of our 2013 Nature Writing Competition. We feature all four winning essays in this, our summer issue.

We also report on initiatives to tackle desertification in Senegal; how to improve patient care in the health service; a new Friends of the Earth project on resource use; and launch a series of articles on sustainable economics.

Here’s a selection of articles and new features from the July/August issue, with links to articles that you can read online. Read more: www.resurgence.org/magazine/

WolvesThe Language of Wolves

If you think wolf conservation has nothing to do with you, think again, because there’s more at stake than the survival of a single species. Ros Coward unravels the dilemmas of reintroducing wolves to the wild and explains why this emotive issue is tied up with the survival of wilderness itself.

latentLatent Healing

Charles Eisenstein, the author of Sacred Economics, explores how the first paradigm shift needs to be towards an understanding of Nature as intelligent and purposive, and how the second should be to use technology to support that unfolding intelligence.
