Ecologist and Resurgence – a stronger voice for change

30th May 2012
As from 1 June 2012 the Ecologist is merging with Resurgence. This is an exciting development as the Ecologist is returning to its roots in print, in collaboration with Resurgence magazine.

As pioneers in the environmental movement, the Ecologist and Resurgence have been instrumental in setting the environmental agenda for over 40 years – bringing critical issues into the mainstream through cutting-edge environmental journalism.

In bringing these organisations together, we are creating a stronger voice for the environmental movement to inform and inspire change.
