The Quiet Revolution
Editor's highlights from the current issue of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine
“The world’s major faiths have quietly been getting on with protecting our living planet – so much so that they now constitute the largest environmental movements in the world…"
Martin Palmer, Secretary General of the Alliance of Religions and Conservation, explains in his article why there are only two forces that have ever positively changed human society – art and religion; and suggests that it’s time for the major conservation movements to creatively join forces with religious environmental programmes.
Here’s a taste of what’s in this issue of Resurgence & Ecologist:
SPECIAL REPORT: TRADITIONAL AGRICULTURE
As Europe starts to face up to the environmental and social consequences of its agricultural policies, Romania’s biodiverse-rich, smallholder farms have begun to challenge policymakers in Brussels. Luke Dale Harris reports.
HEARING THE CALL
An undreamt-of wave of human endeavour is under way and like all true revolutions it belongs to the people. Joanna Macy outlines the movement that will bring about The Great Turning.
SOIL, SOUL, AND SOCIETY
Forget the human centred trinity of mind, body and soul and adopt a more holistic one, which embraces the entire planet Earth. Satish Kumar introduces this new approach, which captures the essence of eco-philosophy.
A MEDITATION ON MOUNTAINS
In celebration of the Green Classic book The Living Mountain Jane MacNamee revisits Nan Shepherd’s mountain story and advocates the need to slow down and find delight in wild things.
