Edited by Robert Minhinnick
Gorwelion: Shared Horizons is a climate change anthology of poetry and prose edited by prize-winning writer and environmental activist Robert Minhinnick, featuring Welsh, Scottish, Indian and English writers. Five writers from India and five from the UK were asked to consider the ‘global’ re: climate change, biodiversity and introduce 'future thinking’. This future might be mundane, marvellous or dreadful.
Contributors from Wales include Peter Finch, Laura Wainwright and Abeer Ameer; from Scotland include Mandy Haggith and Stewart Sanderson; and from India include Sampurna Chatterji.
Produced in collaboration with Sustainable Wales/ Cymru Gynaliadwy.
'Its cumulative power and neat juxtapositions create a weirdly affecting tapestry of voices, histories and imagined voices, the sum of which may well encourage us to pay closer attention to our back yards while keeping an eye on the bigger future.' – Roberto Pastore, Poetry Wales
‘This project aims to imagine what life in Wales could look like in the future as seen through the lens of the cultural dimension of well-being. The Well-being of Future Generations Act requires us to think long-term and broaden our horizons and “Square Mile - Milltir Sgwar” can do just that...’ – Sophie Howe, Future Generations Commissioner for Wales
