Welcome front cover
A Green Manifesto

The September/October issue of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine looks at the Green Manifesto — highlighting the political, economic and environmental challenges we currently face.

Taking a wide-ranging perspective, we feature articles on cutting-edge green politics, urban food production, reconciliation and peace-building, tackling poverty in the developing world, grass roots action, fracking and more. Plus we highlight the role of beauty, art and story to inspire and inform.

In this issue, we seek out the solutions, innovations and ideas that will take us the next step towards a more sustainable and resilient future.

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