Rivercide featured in Resurgence & Ecologist magazine 

I’m delighted to have two pieces in the March/April edition of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine, which has a river theme.

The first is a short piece promoting Rivercide, the live investigative documentary I’m making with George Monbiot and Franny Armstrong – and that’s free to read online at this link.

The second is a feature about the groundbreaking citizens science project run by the Ilkley Clean River campaign, telling the story of how they meticulously gathered evidence about the levels of e-coli in the river Wharfe and used this information to lobby for designated bathing water status – and won! I was very inspired by my conversations with Karen Shackleton and Professor Rick Battarbee and they offer a template for action for other groups across the country.
