Learning from the past to shape the future
Jeremy has been working with a small group of long-term activists & campaigners to develop an oral history of the green movement from the 1970s onwards. It’s taken a long time, but momentum is now building as we see the relevance of a more sustainable world in the light of the combined emergencies of climate, biodiversity, obesity and Covid-19 – all of which could be attributed to unsustainable global business and food systems models. The project has been further developed with Royal Holloway University (London), with the The British Library and The Royal Geographic Society all taking an active interest. Further work is underway – we await the outcome of a funding bid made in the autumn of 2021.
Here is a link to the timeline we are developing with Chris Church and Barbara Brashay launched on Earth Day 2020.
