Satish Kumar

Peace-pilgrim, life-long activist, and former monk, Satish Kumar has been inspiring global change for over 50 years. He undertook a pilgrimage for peace, walking for two years without money from India to America for the cause of nuclear disarmament. Now in his 80s, Satish has devoted his life to campaigning for ecological regeneration and social justice. He is a world-renowned author and international speaker, founder of The Resurgence Trust, and Editor Emeritus of Resurgence & Ecologist – a change-making magazine he edited for over 40 years.

Mukti Mitchell

Carpenter, sailor, speaker, writer and eco-entrepreneur, Mukti Mitchell sailed around Britain in a zero-emission microyacht in 2007, to promote the benefits of low carbon living. Endorsed by the Prince of Wales, the Prime Minister, and political and environmental leaders, the tour reached an audience of 10 million. In 2010, Mukti founded a company devoted to insulating period properties, saving over 15,000 tonnes of CO2 and set up Carbon Savvy, offering online tools which make it simple to understand personal carbon footprints and easy-to-follow recommendations for reducing it. The Carbon Savers Course from Carbon Savvy is the quintessential easy way in to the world of carbon, and yet it takes you all the way to a full understanding of how to reduce every aspect of your carbon footprint. Prepare to be inspired and enthused by his uplifting, no-guilt approach.
