Satish Kumar delights his Worcestershire audience

Redditch Rotarians hosted UK-based environmetal, spritual and social activist Satish Kumar in a rare personal appearance in Worcestershire last week. Satish's talk, entitled 'Soil, Soul and Society' described how his youthful contacts with leading thinkers and activists including Gandhi, Bertrand Russell and Martin Luther King, had helped to shape his world view. Satish went on to explore mankind's failure to respect the global environment, the fundamental basis for life on our planet, and our increasing tendency to disengage from spiritual (as opposed to purely religious) and social values.

A thought-provoking talk, with many connections to the concerns and activities of Rotary throughout the world.
