Stubborn Optimism

Issue 320 - May/June 2020

£4.00 (print) / £4.00 (digital)


In this issue of Resurgence & Ecologist we take a look at the climate emergency challenges we face and the impact of the global pandemic.

Catherine Early speaks to Christiana Figueres about being a 'stubborn optimist' in the face of climate crisis, Harriet Lamb highlights climate solutions from across the world, and we visit a young activist taking a stand in India. In the Ecologist section, Brendan Montague discusses what is behind the spread of coronavirus and George Monbiot talks about connection. In Arts, poet laureate Simon Armitage tells Huw Wahl about his new environmental poetry prize.
