In the current issue

In this issue (Sep/Oct) we focus on stories of hope and inspiration from people doing extra-ordinary things. We asked 'Who are your Heroes for Nature?' and now profile some of your choices including Octavia Hill, a founder of the National Trust, Wangari Maathai, who launched the Green Belt tree-planting movement in Kenya, and Berta Cáceres, the Indigenous peoples' rights campaigner assassinated last year.

We also feature a photography project on land regeneration in cities and the people growing food, restoring the land and providing an alternative to the destructive chains of global agro-industry.

In an exclusive interview, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, one of Tibetan Buddhism's senior figures, talks about the environmental initiatives his spiritual beliefs have inspired, and Oliver Tickell interviews James Thornton from ClientEarth about his work to make governments accountable if they fail to enforce environmental laws.

In this issue you'll also find extended arts pages; eclectic perspectives from our regular columnists; and a wide selection of books and topics covered in our reviews section. We hope you enjoy the featured articles from this issue and invite you to find more about Resurgence & Ecologist magazine and membership of The Resurgence Trust.
