In this issue, we celebrate 30 years of transformative learning with a special section on Schumacher College in South Devon, with features by Alan Boldon, CEO of the Dartington Trust, and Ann Pettifor on the origins of the Green New Deal.

In the Ecologist section, Kieran Lynn reports on a conservation partnership in Australia where traditional knowledge is helping to save the country’s endangered wildlife, Laura Alcock-Ferguson reports from the home of the ‘Survivor Tree’ in Scotland, and Vandana K visits a collective in the Indian Himalayas.

The Keynotes essay in this issue is by psychotherapist Steffi Bednarek, who explains why in this time of toxic normality, we need soulful connection with the world. In our Wisdom & Wellbeing section, Nat Dyer speaks to author Frank White about viewing the Earth from space, and in our Arts features Gary Cook explores an immersive audio and video installation ‘What Listening Knows’.

We hope you enjoy our selection of free articles from this issue of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine.
