Dougald Hine is co-founder of the Dark Mountain Project. In 2007, he responded to a blog post by Paul Kingsnorth and out of the conversations that followed, the two of them wrote Uncivilisation: The Dark Mountain Manifesto. He has held a variety of roles within the project, including as an editor of Issues 1 to 5. In 2017, he returned to the editor's seat for Issue 12: SANCTUM, a special issue on the theme of 'the sacred'.
Aside from Dark Mountain, Dougald has been responsible for the creation of a series of organisations, from School of Everything (a web-startup inspired by the work of Ivan Illich) to Spacemakers (a regeneration agency that grew from a meetup group he started in London in 2009).
His latest project is a school called HOME, founded in 2018 with his partner Anna Björkman. The school is based in Västmanland, Sweden. His new book At Work in the Ruins: Finding Our Place in the Time of Science, Climate Change, Pandemics & All the Other Emergencies is published in February 2023.
