A former monk and long-term peace and environment activist, Satish Kumar has been helping to set the global agenda for change for over 50 years.  Satish is now supporting Oxfam to achieve our shared goal of creating a future where everyone has enough to eat.

The editor of Resurgence magazine, Satish has also written a number of influential books. In 2005, Satish was Sue Lawley's guest on Radio 4's Desert Island Discs. In 2008, he presented a BBC documentary from Dartmoor, Earth Pilgrim, which was watched by over 3.6 million people. He appears regularly in the media, on a range of programmes including Thought for the Day and Midweek.

Satish fully supports the GROW campaign, which aims to fix the broken food system and highlight the whole host of interlinked factors that are stopping nearly 1 billion people worldwide from having enough to eat.
