About the Resurgence Trust

The Resurgence Trust

The Resurgence Trust is an educational charity at the forefront of a movement for change. The charity was established in 2006 to further the educational work of Resurgence magazine.

The Resurgence Trust informs the environmental debate, inspires a culture of optimism and guides us towards positive solutions to the global challenges we now face.

The aim of charity is to foster a greater connection to Nature to enhance personal wellbeing, support resilient communities and inform social change towards regenerative societies that enrich our natural environment.

The charity works to advance education on a range of issues including conservation, regeneration of the natural environment, arts, and culture. The Trust achieves this through three main programmes - the publication of Resurgence & Ecologist, the publication of The Ecologist website, and the production of dynamic a series of events, conferences and workshops.

Through implementing the Trust's charitable objectives, we aim to raise awareness of the opportunities for positive change, inspire action and facilitate debates.

Our Philosophy

When Resurgence started, in 1966, it tackled issues that were only just filtering through to the mainstream debate. Articles were published on the endangered environment, renewable energy and ecological economics. E.F. Schumacher wrote regularly about the perils of chemicals in our food, the simplicity of Buddhist economics and the strength of ‘Small is Beautiful’.

Resurgence continues to publish articles that are on the cutting edge of current thinking, promoting creativity, ecology, spirituality and frugality.

There is too much to read and too little time, so choose reading that carries value for the future: Resurgence.

James Hillman

While the corporate world advocates ‘free trade’, Resurgence questions trade without responsibility and money without morality. While our governments define the ‘national interest’ and their politicians pursue power at all costs, Resurgence argues for politics with principles. While technology invades our lives in the name of speed and efficiency, Resurgence advocates science with a soul.

But Resurgence not only offers a critique of the old paradigm. It also gives working models for an emerging new paradigm. Resurgence (now Resurgence & Ecologist) magazine is packed full of positive ideas about the theory and practice of good living: permaculture, community supported agriculture, local economics, ecological building, sacred architecture, art in the environment, small schools and deep ecology.

Publishing Resurgence & Ecologist is a cottage industry. Edited from his home by former Jain monk Satish Kumar, the magazine is crafted by hand using the skills of our local designer Rachel Marsh. Our memberships are handled by Jeanette Gill from her home near a Cornish village. The magazine is printed in Totnes, Devon on part-recycled paper.

Resurgence inspires, invigorates, informs and transforms!
