Join Satish Kumar and leading thought leaders, change makers, wellbeing pioneers and performers at Resurgence Summer Camp, 30th July till 2nd August
‘Earth Pilgrim’ Satish Kumar once again hosts this year’s eagerly anticipated Resurgence Summer Camp, from 30th July to 2nd August, in the rural wilds of Worcestershire, bringing the the wisdom and inspiration of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine off the pages and into action!
The small and friendly, long weekend event in a canopied eco village – which offers a peaceful and nurturing alternative to the usual summer festival madness – takes place at Green and Away, Europe’s only tented conference centre, on farm land near Worcester. Centred around a fire circle hub surrounded by yurts, domes and a variety of low impact structures – the camp features inspirational speakers and change makers like Paul Mobbs, environmental investigator and campaigner; renowned comic poet Matt Harvey; environmentalist Nicola Peel; author, organic farmer and activist Julian Rose; ‘Laughing Yogi’ Joe Hoare; and Alex Nunn of Action for Happiness.
The event also brings a vibrant and eclectic mix of music, dance and performance (including didgeridoo, Indian classical and ragas), as well as wellbeing, sound and sustainability workshops, and delicious vegetarian food. The Wellbeing programme includes yoga, walking meditation, breath and bodywork.
“Billed as ‘Resurgence in Action’ our small, friendly festival alternative in this beautiful eco haven in rural Worcestershire, offers a relaxing, thought provoking and highly enjoyable weekend with simple tips for living a more sustainable, healthy life, in harmony with nature,” says Satish Kumar. “Come and join us for a direct experience of Resurgence & Ecologist’s message of care for the environment and discover inspiration for living a more meaningful life.”
Proceeds from ticket sales to the camp go to the Resurgence Trust, the UK educational charity offering environmental education through the pages of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine and related websites (www.resurgence.org; www.theecologist.org), and workshops where readers and environmentalists share ideas for working together for a better future.
Susan Clark, former Editor of Resurgence & Ecologist Magazine, says:
“What I discovered during my five years working for Resurgence & Ecologist is that words on a page can trigger ideas but sitting with like-minded people who share those ideas and concerns can trigger strong feelings that make you want to act on those concerns and do your bit. If you too are a part of this mindset then you already understand why the food that’s served at Resurgence Summer Camp is vegetarian and why music plays a key part in connecting and uplifting those who come. The camp is a fantastic opportunity to experience ‘Resurgence in Action’.”
