Laurie Michaelis has been at the heart of Friends witness to the environment over many years. His writing engages powerfully with two threads of his life that have increasingly come together in the personal witness of many Friends in Britain today: spirituality and sustainability. Recently Laurie has focused on working with sustainability organisations and networks that use Quaker-inspired governance systems.
