Just Be Nice

This week’s cover is an exclusive design by acclaimed artist Dave Buonaguidi. He has curated an amazing collection of artwork from the country’s top contemporary artists, all around the theme of just being nice. This special edition is only on sale from your local vendor, with the works soon to be exhibited and sold in an auction to support the work of The Big Issue. Very nice!

As COP27 begins, we take a look at the biggest environmental issues facing us today, including an interview with Rosamund Adoo-Kissi-Debrah whose daughter, Ella, died from a fatal asthma attack, and was the first case where air pollution was cited as a cause of death.

Forty years after War Horse was first published, its author, Michael Morpurgo, says its anti-war message has never been more pertinent.

This week’s Letter To My Younger Self comes from Happy Mondays’ dancer Bez, who tells us of his surprise TV fame.
