January/February 2014

Welcome front cover
Benevolent Universe

The January/February issue of Resurgence & Ecologist reflects back on the world we have created and looks forward to what needs to happen now to keep sustainability at the top of our local, global and personal agendas.

Satish Kumar invites us to begin the New Year with a new philosophy – one that takes us beyond self-interest to embrace the idea of mutual interest, reciprocity and interdependence. This new philosophy of unity will shift the balance and enable us to address key environmental and economic challenges in 2014.

Ecologist Editor, Oliver Tickell, reviews the energy debate in the light of the IPCC report and reveals where we need to concentrate our efforts in the future. We also take a look at new initiatives in farming, consider the true value of sustainable education and share a special feature on poetry.
