The 2020 Network Book Prize for the most significant book published by a Member during the year has been awarded to Colin Tudge for his book The Great Re-Think: A 21st Century Renaissance.
Colin read Natural Sciences at Cambridge and worked as a science journalist for many years as well as hosting his own programme on Radio 3. In 2010 he founded the Oxford Real Farming Conference and is now helping to set up the College for Real Farming. In this seminal book he asks how we can create convivial societies in a flourishing biosphere based on fundamental principles of morality and ecology rooted in perennial metaphysics.
He will be giving a webinar course in April.
