A former monk and long-term peace and environment activist, Satish is perhaps best known as the editor of Resurgence magazine, now The Ecologist & Resurgence. In his 20s he was inspired by British peace activist Bertrand Russell, and embarked on an 8,000-mile peace pilgrimage together with E.P. Menon. Carrying no money and depending on the kindness and hospitality of strangers, they walked from India to America, via Moscow, London and Paris, to deliver a humble packet of ‘peace tea’ to the then leaders of the world’s four nuclear powers. In 1973 Satish settled in the United Kingdom taking up the post of editor of Resurgence magazine. He is a regular teacher at Schumacher College in South Devon where he is still a Visiting Fellow. His autobiography, No Destination, was first published by Green Books in 1978 and he is also the author of You Are, Therefore I Am: A Declaration of Dependence and The Buddha and the Terrorist. In 2005, Satish was Sue Lawley’s guest on Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs. In 2008, as part of BBC2’s Natural World series, he presented a 50-minute documentary from Dartmoor, Earth Pilgrim, which was watched by over 3.6 million people. Satish is on the Advisory Board of Our Future Planet.
