Join the Resurgence Trust and help keep The Ecologist as a free service

3rd March 2017
Resurgence Trust publishes the Ecologist and Resurgence websites and Resurgence & Ecologist magazine
The not-for-profit Resurgence Trust has owned and run The Ecologist website since 2012. Since then, we have maintained this site as a free service to an international community that shares our agenda of seeking positive solutions to the challenges of environment, social justice and ethical living. Help us to keep doing this by joining the Trust or making a donation today
Once a voice in the wilderness, we have long campaigned for a greater awareness of the challenges facing humanity and for a greater focus on solutions to these challenges.

Who are we?

The Resurgence Trust is a UK-based educational charity that has become a flagship voice for the environmental movement across the globe. Our mission is to inspire each other to help make a difference and find positive solutions to the global challenges we now face.

To do this, we publish Resurgence & Ecologist magazine, run the Ecologist and Resurgence websites and host regular events - such as the annual Festival of Wellbeing and the Resurgence Summer Camps - not just to share our collective concerns about the environment, social justice, peace and ethical living, but to find solutions.

Once a voice in the wilderness - Resurgence magazine was founded in 1966 - we have long campaigned for a greater awareness of the challenges facing humanity and for a greater focus on solutions to these challenges. We have been proud to present leading writers, thinkers and activists on these issues, in our magazine, on our websites and at our events.

And of course, we do all this on a shoestring, with a small but dedicated team of editors and others.

To help us continue this important work, please find out more about The Resurgence Trust and join as a member.

You can also support our work with a small, regular donation. Your donation will be used to support The Resurgence Trust which is commited to maintaining The Ecologist website as a free, independent source of information on the environmental issues that really matter. Donate here 


Satish Kumar - Editor Emeritus, The Resurgence Trust

Satish Kumar is the globally recognized ‘face' of Resurgence.  A Jain monk-turned-Gandhian land reformer and international peace walker, he edited Resurgence from 1973 to 2016 (it became Resurgence & Ecologist in 2012). He continues to write, teach and champion The Resurgence Trust.




The Ecologist has a formidable reputation built on fifty years of investigative journalism and compelling commentary from writers across the world. Now, as we face the compound crises of climate breakdown, biodiversity collapse and social injustice, the need for rigorous, trusted and ethical journalism has never been greater. This is the moment to consolidate, connect and rise to meet the challenges of our changing world. The Ecologist is owned and published by the Resurgence Trust.
