The video was first shown during the opening ceremony of 'One Earth, One Humanity, One Future' - a four day event that brought together leading figures from the world's green and social justice movements and 50 plus international speakers and performers to celebrate 50 years of the UK's longest standing green magazine Resurgence (Resurgence & Ecologist since 2012).

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Resurgence, The Resurgence Trust staged a three-day spectacular event, entitled One Earth, One Humanity, One Future, from Thursday 22nd to Sunday 25th September, at Worcester College, Oxford.

One Earth, One Humanity, One Future offered a rich melting pot of inspiring talks, thought-provoking conversations, stimulating panel discussions and stirring performances. Leading edge global speakers shared their latest ideas and ground-breaking solutions relating to climate change, ecology, social justice, spirituality, the arts, and other interconnecting contemporary issues.
The 50-plus speakers included spirit and science author, Fritjof Capra; activist and campaigner for farmers' rights, soil and seeds, Vandana Shiva; Green MP Caroline Lucas; campaigner and celebrity chef, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall; and celebrated film maker Lord Puttnam.

Talks were interspersed with spirited world dance and song performances.
Worcester College and its gardens provided a stunning venue and backdrop to the event. Steeped in centuries of learning, the remarkable college architecture is set amid 26 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, offering a tranquil haven to discuss and reflect on the ideas and inspiration of the programme.
