About this book

To celebrate forty years of publishing "Resurgence" - the magazine at the heart of earth, art and spirit - and forty years of the environmental movement, authors and contributors to the magazine were asked to reflect on the changes wrought during this period and the challenges humanity faces in the next forty years. In an inspiring collection that is both nostalgic and startlingly frank, many of the original thinkers and activists of our time discuss the state we're in - and how to get out of it.

The contributors include Deepak Chopra ("I knew everything about medicine and almost nothing about healing"); Richard Heinberg ("There is a simple formula to avoid economic collapse: reduce oil consumption by 3 percent per year"); James Lovelock ("Through our intelligence and communication networks, human beings are the nervous system of the planet"); and Anita Roddick ("Corporations must shift their energy into making the world cleaner and fairer").

With an Introduction by Annie Lennox and a message of support from His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, this compendium sets the agenda for the future. The other contributors include Jonathon Porritt, Caroline Lucas, Tim Smit, Richard Mabey, Geoff Mulgan, Michael Meacher, Alan Simpson, Jerry Mander, John Elkington, Vandana Shiva, Fritjof Capra and Scilla Elworthy.
