The Future In Our Hands
In our New Year issue we look at Rewilding and include an interview with conservationist and author Isabella Tree; and a piece by Fiona MacIsaac and Magnus Davidson about why Scotland’s rewilding plans should utilise Gaelic to inform the debate.
In the Ecologist section Brendan Montague explains how tougher rules on fossil fuel investments could help avert economic disaster and Jonathan Neale looks at what comes after COP26. In Connected Life Laurie King finds out how young people are turning eco-anxiety into empowerment and Gary Cook meets former tree surgeon turned activist Robin Walter.
Our Feature Story is the winner of the essay competition ‘Education As If People and Planet Matter’, launched to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Schumacher College and set up in collaboration with Resurgence & Ecologist. In Wisdom & Wellbeing Sandor Katz introduces us to perpetual pickling delights, with a turmeric paste fermentation recipe; and in Art & Culture Anna Souter speaks to Zadok Ben-David about his new exhibition Natural Reserve at Kew Gardens.
