Many of us in the modern world are city-dwellers. Most of the trees we encounter are in local urban parks.

And that's a problem. We're losing our intimate relationship and understanding of forests as the world urbanizes. We don't see the clear-cut hillsides, the splintered stumps and the plunder. They are outside our field of vision. Partly this stems from our mistaken sense that the natural wealth of the planet is boundless and inexhaustible. But this is folly.

We can no longer afford to cut-and-run. The forces that are destroying the world's last ancient forests need to be resisted, and the communities whose lives and culture are rooted there, defended. At stake is nothing less than the ability of the land, water and wildlife to provide for future generations.

Elsewhere in this issue we welcome the return of New Zealand-based contributor, John F Schumaker, who explains the difference between depression and demoralization in our modern consumer culture.

Last stand: saving the world's forests

This edition of the New Internationalist magazine takes a special look at the assault on global forests and asks: is sustainable forestry an oxymoron?

NOTE: This trial subscription will start with the Forests issue, plus you'll receive the following three issues free of charge, and there's no obligation to continue as a subscriber after that. For you it's $38 value. You'll pay only a $0.50 administration fee.

The New Internationalist magazine offers an independent alternative - a voice for the marginalised; an emphasis on global justice; campaigns for climate justice; a beacon of hope.

Commendations

The magazine is a secular publication. Readers, both Christian and non-Christian, may not always agree with all its conclusions. But it is an excellent catalyst for better informed thought and action. It pulls no punches yet at the same time is written with sensitivity and compassion ... could be of immense help in our becoming more globally aware and responsible citizens.

Gil Cann, editor, Working Together (published by the Australian Evangelical Alliance)

I am eager not to miss a single issue of your always informative and thought-provoking publication.

I want to congratulate you on the fantastic job you do with New Internationalist Australia.

The stories attached to the products are very inspiring and uplifting. Please keep up the great work.

K. Bourke, subscriber

What motivated the founders of the New Internationalist magazine was a high idealism; a real sense that we could change things; that if people knew the facts about what was going on, then they could actually have the wherewithal to campaign and try to make the world a better place.
