In the current issue

In this issue of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine, we look at ways people around the world are nurturing life - and hope - in the extreme. In the Ecologist section, Matt Kendall celebrates post-pandemic pedal power in Paris, and Rhiane Fatinikun speaks to Resurgence & Ecologist about her new group Black Girls Hike and tackling racism in the British countryside.

In Keynotes, Russell Warfield interviews former politician Jane Davidson about the pioneering Future Generations Act, which sets a precedent for leaders across the globe. In Arts, Michael Benson, director of the Prix Pictet photography prize, explores how images can be a powerful tool for communicating hope amid the horror of human-made crises.

As schools and universities re-open, we head to the classroom for a special look at education at a time of coronavirus and ask: could the crisis of the last few months provide vital lessons for the future?

We hope you enjoy our selection of free articles from this issue of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine. If you'd like to read this issue in full, you can purchase a print or pdf issue or join The Resurgence Trust as a member and receive 6 issues a year in print, with free delivery.
