Resurgence Summer Camp

Resurgence Summer Camp 2017

One Earth - Resurgence Live :: Building community - sharing solutions

Friday 30 Jun to Sunday 02 Jul 2017, near Malvern

"Spending time at Green and Away is an utter joy. Try it!" - Kirstin Irving

We're delighted to announce that the Resurgence summer camp is back for 2017!


Resurgence Live is a weekend of inspiring talks, workshops, music, storytelling, poetry and craft - a weekend that brings the ideas and ethos of Resurgence & Ecologist to life.

This small, friendly gathering is unique and limited to just 140 places, so please book early to avoid disappointment. The summer camp is a place to discover new ideas, share experiences, recharge, rest and enjoy. During the weekend, there will be time to listen to talks, ask questions, explore in-depth ideas and make connections.

We are once again holding the Resurgence summer camp at the glorious Green & Away campsite - described by a previous participant as 'a small corner of paradise'.

Satish Kumar

Satish Kumar has been quietly setting the Global Agenda for change for over 50 years. He is a sought-after leader in the fields of holistic education and reverential ecology. Satish has been the guiding spirit behind Resurgence for 43 years, inspiring all those he meets to be the change they want to see in the world. An Indian peace activist who became a Jain monk at an early age, Satish has written a number of books and featured in a full-length BBC documentary Earth Pilgrim.

Leo Johnson is a regular lecturer for Cambridge University's Programme for Sustainability Leadership and Co-Founder of Sustainable Finance Ltd. He recently co-presented BBC R4's programme 'Future Proofing', looking at the implications - social and cultural, economic and political - of the big ideas that are set to transform the way our society functions. He writes a regular column Resurgence & Ecologist.

Matthew Shaw

Matthew Shaw is a Dorset-based artist and musician. He works for Lush cosmetics with the envious job title 'Free Thinker'. Currently specialising in publishing and social media channels for Lush, Matt is exploring how the digital age can support communities, provide a platform for activism and report on the ideas and the people that inspire us.


Matt Harvey

Matt Harvey: Writer, poet, enemy of all that's difficult and upsetting, Matt's way with words has taken him from Totnes to the Wimbledon Tennis Championships via Saturday Live, the Edinburgh Festival and the Work section of the Guardian. He hosted Wondermentalist - Radio 4's comedy-infused, musically enhanced interactive poetry cabaret - and is the author of The Hole in the Sum of my Parts (Poetry Trust, 2005), Where Earwigs Dare (Green Books, 2010) and The Element in the Room: poems inspired by renewable energy (Quixotic Press, 2014). He writes a regular column in Resurgence & Ecologist.



We're delighted to welcome back Ombiviolum - one of the most exciting recent fusion experiments to emerge from the rich pool of African-Western crossover. Central to its music is the 'mbira', the 'thumb-piano of the ancestors' from the Shona people in Zimbabwe. Western musicians bring their own unique take on Zimbabwean mbira music with instruments such as double bass, violin, guitar, Irish Whistle, Doudouk (Armenian double reed flute), frame drum, Spanish cajon, vocals and dance. Ombiviolum transport their audience into a world where the rhythmic meets the lyrical in an evocative landscape of heart and healing, where you are free to breathe it all in, to sing along or boogie!

Ombiviolum will be running an African Dance workshop during the afternoon so you can get in the spirit before their gig on Saturday evening!

We will update this webpage as more details about the programme become available. Programme details may change.
