Resurgence Summer Camp

Explore creative ideas for change

Fri 10 Jul - Sun 12 Jul 2020

Venue: Green & Away, The Fold, Bransford, Worcester, WR6 5JB

Next year will be our 21st Resurgence Summer camp at Green and Away. Join us for the Resurgence Summer camp - a small, friendly, off-grid gathering at Green & Away - and share ideas for a greener future.

Everything I imagined it to be - wonderful poetry, talks, music, stories, food, cake, bar, showers, weather, wildflower walk, location, solar panels, people, baby bell tent... inspired!

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.

Open Space Sessions

Open Space is an opportunity to work together with whatever comes up from our weekend. You can choose to offer sessions or to attend sessions, which can be on something you are passionate about (for instance Extinction Rebellion or the role out of 5G), or perhaps a continuation of a talk or workshop that people would like to explore further. If you have something that you would like to share, come along and participate in an interactive session. If there's something you'd really like to know about, you can suggest a topic and see what emerges.

Open Mic around the Fire

The open mic around the fire returns this year. This is your chance to share a song, dance, sing, or perform solo or with friends. Bring instruments, a poem, a song and join in the entertainment.

Keep a look out for programme updates.
