Resurgence Summer Camp returns!

Dates: Friday 30 June – Sunday 2 July

Location: Green & Away Conference Centre, Bransford, Worcestershire, WR6 5JB

The ideas, ethos and spirit of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine will spring to life again at the annual Resurgence Summer Camp from Friday 30 June to Sunday 2 July, when it returns to the beautiful Green and Away tented eco village, near Malvern, in rural Worcestershire.

Having taken a break in 2016 to make space for Resurgence’s 50th anniversary ‘One Earth, One Humanity, One Future’ festival in Oxford, this year’s Summer Camp – billed ‘Resurgence Live’ – is an invitation to “build community and share solutions for a sustainable future”.

Greg Neale, Editor-in-Chief of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine says: “Continuing our quest to inspire a happier, healthier, more sustainable world, our ‘Resurgence Live’ Summer Camp is a weekend of inspiring talks, workshops, music, storytelling, poetry, craft, and gatherings around the campfire. It’s a time and place to share rich experiences, recharge, rest and enjoy.  Join us for a live experience of Resurgence & Ecologist in action and share inspiration for living a more meaningful life.”

Headline speakers at the event include Satish Kumar, Editor Emeritus of The Resurgence Trust; Leo Johnson, co-presenter of the BBC Radio 4 series Future Proofing; “free thinker” Matthew Shaw, who advises ethical cosmetics company Lush on activism and social change in the digital age; nature connection facilitator and grassroots activist Kara Moses; and Sarah Corbett, who uses craft as a tool for gentle activism to influence long-term change.  The Craftivists’ approach “If we want the world to be more beautiful, kind and fair, then shouldn’t our activism also be more beautiful, kind and fair?” is a theme that runs throughout the weekend programme, with talks and workshops that will be both challenging and uplifting.

Music highlights include Ombiviolum, with their magical mbira-infused Zimbabwean rhythms, and Eleanor Brown, a creative activist and songwriter using words, music and rhythm to connect, express and uplift. Poet Matt Harvey brings his inimitable sprinkle of humorous, lyrical activism, and – by popular demand – Denise Rowe and members of Ombiviolum will also be running an African dance workshop.

The tranquil, riverside Green & Away site, charged by wind and solar power, has a range of “back to nature” accommodation on offer, including the chance to rent bell tents and yurts.

Tickets cost £140 and are limited to 140 places, so book early to avoid disappointment.
