     Hello, and a warm welcome to the website of Alastair McIntosh. Thank you for visiting my home page. See below for contact details and my public itinerary. The tabs above for are for main themes, and links on the left include a classified index of my publications and some other key ports of call. 

I grew up and was educated on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland,. Together with four years in the 1970-80s working with appropriate technology in Papua New Guinea, my background gave me a grounding that has shaped my life's work. Much of this has focussed on land reform, community empowerment and the psychology and even spirituality of the wider human condition.

Since 2004, my wife Vérène Nicolas and I have lived within the parish boundary of Govan in the City of Glasgow where I am a founding trustee of the GalGael Trust. This works to "demonstrate ways of living with greater humanity in our times", helping one another to rebuild community and to counter unjust social structures that impact upon a hard-pressed urban area. Véréne is French. We met in rural Ireland in 1996, and she works with transformative learning and collaborative leadership.

Nearly all of what I've posted on this website has been previously published or delivered as an address. The resources here include landing pages for my books, the text of speeches, academic papers, articles and letters in the press, poetry, reports and some broadcasts. There's direct links to the past year's publications at the bottom left column of this page. Video etc. is either on the interviews menu, or provided as Zoom recording links for the current and previous year in my public itinerary lower down this page.

Since 1996, my work has been mainly freelance as a human ecologist, writer, speaker, researcher and activist. I am a Quaker, an honorary senior research fellow (honorary professor) in the College of Social Sciences at the University of Glasgow, and as a Fellow of the Centre for Human Ecology was Scotland's first professor of human ecology at the University of Strathclyde. I have also held honorary fellowships at the Academy of Irish Cultural Heritages (University of Ulster), the School of Divinity (University of Edinburgh) and the Schumacher Society. 


What I do and stand for

     This website broadly represents my work in human ecology - the study of and participation in relationships between the natural environment and the social environment. My approach to this integrates depth psychology and the spiritual. I understand the spiritual to be the inner ground of being in which our outer lives are held. In this, I am especially influenced by liberation theology in Christianity and other faiths, this being theology that liberates theology to liberate humanity. In choosing what to work on, I therefore ask questions like:

bulletDoes what I do feed the hungry?
bulletIs it relevant to the poor or to the broken in nature?
bulletIs it meaningful?
bulletDoes it give life?

In practice, this means working with professional groups, communities and key individuals within them to develop their vision, courage and capacity for practical change. It is the question of what gives life that most binds my work together, work that often involves holding seeming contradictions together in tension, and trying to approach matters with what the Celtic monks called "the inward ear of the heart" (Adomnán, Columba, II:13).

My books have variously been described as "weaving a dizzying range of ideas into a single bright fabric" by the poet John Burnside, "an inspiration to anyone who cares about their own connection to place" by Professor Carolyn Merchant, "a life-giving vision for our collective future" by Professor Michael E. Mann, "solid on the science yet dedicated to the human spirit" by Professor Katharine Hayhoe, "careful, sober reasoning" by Mary Midgley, "a spiritual journey" by Starhawk, "world-changing" by George Monbiot, "life-changing" by the Bishop of Liverpool and "truly mental" by Tom Yorke of Radiohead.

Places at which I have spoken or taught include:

bulletEnvironmental organisations including the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, WWF International, the Society for Ecological Regeneration and Schumacher College;
bulletReligious bodies such as the World Council of Churches, the Holy Trinity Sergyev monastery and Iona Abbey;
bulletMilitary institutions (on nonviolence) regularly at the UK Defence Academy, also the Royal College of Defence Studies, the École Spéciale Militaire de Saint-Cyr, the Irish Military College and the Geneva Centre for Security Policy;
bulletBusiness groups including Groupe Credit Mutuel, Shell plc, Nokia Research Centre and Lafarge (on whose Sustainability Stakeholders' Panel I sat for a decade);
bulletUniversity institutions including the Russian Academy of Sciences, Duke Divinity School, INSEAD business school, the Glasgow School of Art and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama;
bulletFestivals including the Edinburgh International, Ashville Wordfest, Greenbelt, HowTheLightGetsIn and the Lochs Agricultural Show back home in the Isle of Lewis.


Background and availability for events

     Born in 1955, all of my school education (1960-73) took place in the community where I was raised, on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides or Western Isles. A traditional Scottish education allows for a generalist worldview. I hold a BSc in geography from the University of Aberdeen (1973-77) submajoring in psychology and moral philosophy; a financial MBA from the University of Edinburgh (1980-81); and a PhD by published works in liberation theology, land reform and community empowerment from the Academy of Irish Cultural Heritages, University of Ulster (2008). A CV and short bio is here.

Since 1996 I've made my living on an entirely self employed basis - writing, broadcasting, keynote speaking at events, workshops, retreats, taught courses and consultancy. For availability see my public itinerary, and a rough idea of the kind of things I talk about at this list. My personal financial accountability, my suggesting scale of charging for events, and my approach to travel in the face of climate change are all given here. I undertake live and online events, and have the technology to offer blended events using Zoom.

The pandemic has caused most face-to-face events to have been cancelled or shifted online from 2020 into early 2022. However, I am fully vaccinated, and for in-person invitations can offer to bring and operate Zoom-adequate cameras and studio-quality wireless microphones to enable blended events.

I run this website to represent myself professionally. Its main purpose is to make my published work readily available and to give events information. Forgive it being a homespun website. I use antique FrontPage software from the last century, but it does a good enough job and I know how to manage it myself. Treat it as a retro experience.

For work issues please try to avoid phoning outside weekday working hours. Remember time zones - we're in GMT or BST in summer (i.e. GMT+1). If you need to discuss something that requires much thought I prefer an email first if possible to arrange a mutually convenient calling time. I am on Skype, Facetime, WhattsApp and Zoom: but unless it is a pressing matter please first try to arrange any call by email or text.



Directions to our home/office:


Public Transport: For public transport in Scotland, it is worthwhile downloading the Traveline Scotland app. If coming from central Glasgow, take the subway (underground train) to either Govan or Ibrox. They're each one mile from our house. From Govan is a more interesting walk, but Ibrox is a simpler route and less congested if we're picking you up by car (see below if walking). From either Govan subway station or the city centre (Renfield St), you can get a McGills Route 26 bus to the second stop on Craigton Road, from where we're the next street up on the right. The fare is £3.60 from town as of the start of 2018). They're every 10 or 16 minutes during the day, but the timetable is unreliable. Our house is no. 26, half way along Luss Rd on the right. If coming from city centre's Queen St or Central stations, the stops for the 26 bus are on Renfield Street (extending onto Union Street). Taxis up from Govan are about £4, from city centre about £12, and from the airport about £20.


If walking from the subway exit at Ibrox, turn right onto Copland Road. Up to the lights and turn right. Pass alongside the Rangers football stadium, go straight on over the first roundabout, straight over the second roundabout, on to the lights, turn right down Craigton Road, and Luss Road is the 5th exit on the left (depending on what you count as an exit).


By Car: If coming on the M8 from east or west, exit at junction 24 (Helen Street), signposted for Govan. Head downhill and over the lights to a roundabout, as if heading to the Clyde Tunnel. Turn left at the roundabout then right at the lights into a residential area, Craigton Road (signposted to "Elderpark Workspace"). Luss Road is the 3rd on the left (or 4th depending on what you count). 


If coming by car from the North via the Clyde Tunnel, as you exit the tunnel prepare to take the first left just at the tunnel's end. Be careful - it comes on you very quickly and it's easy to overshoot. This brings you out onto Govan Road with a very large roundabout. Turn right at this, onto Drive Road, passing a Elder Park on your left. At the end of Drive road, keep the park on your left by turning left onto Langlands Road. Take the 3rd right, just before you lose the park, onto Arklett Road, then 2nd right is Luss Road.


Avoid the M8 approaches if you can when there's a football match on at Ibrox. There may also be parking congestion at such times. Taxi drivers from outwith this area do not know it well. Tell them that you want Luss Road which is off Craigton Road, and to take the Helen Street exit if coming from the M8.


If you are viewing in iOS or similar "Reader" mode,  temporarily "hide reader", or otherwise turn it off, to view the timetable below and links above and to the side. Reader modes generally only let you see plain text. They don't display a full web page with boxes, tables, etc..



Alastair McIntosh's Itinerary of Main Events

This table shows roughly which dates I'm booked up for, with booking links and, often, links to previous events' video recordings. It also shows what sorts of events I take on. For information on booking me for events please click here. For an overview of my typical speaking topics click here. Gaps in the timetable do not necessarily signify availability, especially over weekends, as this is not my private diary. Dates marked for delivery of Thought for the Day mean that I have to be near a BBC studio early that morning, and have time on the previous day for preparation - though these dates can be swapped with another presenter. Events marked "s.t.c." are "subject to consent/confirmation", and it is best to confirm events with the organisers' information before turning up.
