A former monk and long-term peace and environment activist, Satish Kumar has been quietly setting the Global Agenda for change for over 50 years. He was just nine when he left his family home to join the wandering Jains and 18 when he decided he could achieve more back in the world, campaigning for land reform in India and working to turn Gandhi’s vision of a renewed India and a peaceful world into reality. Satish has been the editor of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine since 1973. He is the author of five books and his autobiography, No Destination, published by Green Books in 1978, has sold over 50,000 copies.
