He is best known for Dark Mountain, an emerging cultural movement he co-founded with Paul Kingsnorth five years ago. Dark Mountain looks squarely at the profound disruption we are all experiencing and offers a creative space, somewhere between apocalypse and false hope, in which people can engage in a conversation about a future life worth living, freed from wishful thinking that the world will once again be as it was.
