Small World Big Ideas

Satish Kumar

THERE’S AN ACTIVIST IN ALL OF US AND YOU DON’T HAVE TO SHOUT TO BE HEARD.

That’s the message from internationally respected peace activist SATISH KUMAR, who has been quietly setting the agenda for change for over fifty years. And to prove it, Satish has invited ten of those activists he most admires to join him in sharing their inspiring life stories, revealing who or what made them want to change the world and what kind of world they want to help create.

They are green activists and politicians BOB BROWN and CAROLINE LUCAS, climate change campaigner and filmmaker FRANNY ARMSTRONG, conservationists TIM FLANNERY and JANE GOODALL, environmentalists BILL McKIBBEN and VANDANA SHIVA, slow food advocate CARLO PETRINI, environment lawyer POLLY HIGGINS and mind body healing pioneer DEEPAK CHOPRA. Their illuminating stories will encourage all of us to put our big ideas into action.

A former Jain monk, SATISH KUMAR hit headlines around the globe in 1962 when he walked from New Delhi to Moscow, Paris, London and Washington, delivering 'peace tea' to the countries' leaders. He is the long-standing editor of the highly respected RESURGENCE magazine, and co-founder of the SCHUMACHER COLLEGE, which educates its students in eco-consciousness and the means for effective change.

'Satish Kumar has devoted his life to campaigning for a better, greener world, and it is appropriate that he has chosen to edit this inspiring book, which celebrates the lives and visions of others who have done the same.'
Zac Goldsmith, author of The Constant Economy
