In the current issue

In the May/June issue of Resurgence & Ecologist we reflect on the importance of the natural world and the need to find solutions to our collective problems - and to do so urgently.

Environmental lawyer James Thornton asks 'What do we need to do if we want to improve the network of laws that connect, project and bind us?', while campaigner Tony Juniper looks at the systemic problems and what might be done about them - ultimately hopeful that the combined power of informed citizens can turn big vision into action.

Guy Singh-Watson talks to us about Riverford Organics and its future as a pioneering employee-owned business, and Darren McGarvey reports on the emergence of new forms of community activism in inner-city Glasgow.

In our arts coverage, musician Alexander Chapman Campell recalls his pilgrimage across Norway and its influence on his latest compositions, and we profile artist Garry Fabian Miller whose work brings together techniques of camera-less photography and textile design to evoke a deep sense of connection with the natural world.

We hope you enjoy this issue of Resurgence & Ecologist and take time to explore our featured articles.
