SATISH KUMAR, the UK’s longest standing editor, prepares to celebrate his 80th birthday and the 50th anniversary of Resurgence magazine with a pilgrimage and festival flying the flag for a sustainable future. Satish will mark his 80th birthday and the 50th anniversary of Resurgence (Resurgence & Ecologist since 2012) with a festival at Worcester College, Oxford calling for a more sustainable future (22nd-25th September); he’ll also be making a 50-mile pilgrimage from the source of the River Thames to Oxford (arriving 21st September), raising the curtain on this landmark event. Entitled  ‘One Earth, One Humanity, One Future’, the festival - held in partnership with Oxfam, UPLIFT, Network of Wellbeing and the Tedworth Trust - will bring together  50 plus international speakers and performers to share ideas and inspiration for building a healthier, more equitable and united world. And echoing a core theme of the festival, Satish’s pilgrimage - to be joined by 50 walkers for the last 30 miles - will make a stand for the environment: http://www.resurgence.org/education/media-resources/Resurgence-50-Satish-Kumars-Story.pdf
