The relaunch has been timed to follow the Johannesburg Summit which The Ecologist claims was 'dismal' for environmentalists. In a statement editor Zac Goldsmith said: 'No longer is it enough to criticise a failed agenda - from now on The Ecologist will be setting its own.'
Changes to content are sketchy, but it is known the magazine will now be split into seven sections: politics; science and tech; food; nature and resources; health; society, media and culture; and economics.
Goldsmith said: 'In the past we have spoken to our readers as a club of like-minded people. This is about reaching a more general consumer audience.'
