Roger Higman: Network of Wellbeing (N0W)

NOW share our vision of a world where everyone's wellbeing needs are met within the planet's natural limits. NOW believe that a person's wellbeing depends on the wellbeing of the community in which they live and work, while the wellbeing of their community depends on the wellbeing of society as a whole, and the long-term health of the natural world on which we all depend. Through events, seminars and workshops, NOW support an active network of people and organisations who care about wellbeing. There are many ways for you to connect with the network, including coming along to our workshop at the Resurgence summer camp.

Satish Kumar: Elegant Simplicity

Satish Kumar: Elegant Simplicity

Satish Kumar is the Editor Emeritus of Resurgence & Ecologist. A former monk and long-term peace and environment activist, Satish Kumar has been quietly setting the global agenda for change for over 50 years. Inspired in his early 20s by the example of the British peace activist Bertrand Russell, Satish embarked on an 8,000-mile peace pilgrimage. Carrying no money, he walked from India to America, via Moscow, London and Paris, to deliver a humble packet of 'peace tea' to the leaders of the world's then four nuclear powers. In 1973 Satish settled in the UK becoming the editor of Resurgence magazine. He has been the guiding spirit behind a number of now internationally respected ecological and educational ventures. He co-founded Schumacher College in South Devon, where he is a Visiting Fellow. His autobiography, No Destination, first published by Green Books in 1978, has sold over 50,000 copies.
