Resurgence & Ecologist - annual Festival of Wellbeing: The shift from economic growth to growth in wellbeing.

The Resurgence & Ecologist - Festival of Wellbeing explores 'wellbeing' from from environmental, personal, political and economic perspectives.

Speakers this year included: Alys Fowler, Tony Juniper, Satish Kumar, Ruth Padel, Vandana Shiva, Edward Skidelsky, Ben Okri and Rowan Williams.

 Martin was spontaneously invited onstage by Vandana Shiva, where here received a standing ovation for his first public performance of "Recipe for Disaster", a new poem on GMO food giant, Monsanto. 

Later that day, he traveled with Vandana to perform at the "Worldwide March Against Monsanto" outside the Houses of Parliament

"Martin's Monsanto poem holds devastating power. I heard the first public reading at the Festival of Wellbeing in London. It brought truth with clarity, not least with a kind of conviction and passion that is all too rare." 

- Tony Juniper
