George Monbiot explores a new positive environmentalism, which shows how damaged ecosystems can be restored, and how this restoration can revitalise and enrich our lives.


Journalist and environmentalist George Monbiot visits the RSA to tell the story of his efforts to re-engage with nature and discover a new way of living. Drawing upon remarkable new scientific discoveries, he lays out a new, positive environmentalism, in which nature is allowed to find its own way.

By restoring and “rewilding” our damaged ecosystems on land and at sea, he argues, we can repair the living planet, create ecosystems in the UK as profuse and captivating as any around the world, and bring wonder back into our lives. Join George Monbiot at the RSA as he argues for a mass restoration of the natural world - and makes a powerful call for us to reclaim our own place in it.

Speaker: George Monbiot, journalist, environmentalist and author of Feral: searching for enchantment on the frontiers of rewilding (Allen Lane, 2013)

Chair: Tony Juniper, independent sustainability and environment adviser and author of What has nature ever done for us? (Profile, 2013).
