Richard Louv to speak in Boulder Oct. 13
The world renowned author will speak about nature and technology
Journalist and author Richard Louv will present “Building a New Nature Movement for the 21st Century: Nature-Deficit Disorder and the Nature Principle” on the University of Colorado Boulder campus on Thursday, October 13 at 6:30pm in the University Memorial Center Glenn Miller Ballroom. The event is free and open to the public and is co-sponsored by CU Environmental Center, The Nature Conservancy, and the CU Children, Youth and Environments Center.
Louv has authored eight books about the connections between family, nature and community. He has written for The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Times of London, and appeared on national television and radio broadcasts. His nationally bestselling book “Last Child in the Woods” sparked a national debate and an international movement.
Louv’s newest book, “The Nature Principle: Human Restoration and the End of Nature-Deficit Disorder” (Algonquin), delivers a powerful call to action. “The Nature Principle” offers a vision of the future in which our lives are as immersed in nature as they are in technology. Louv identifies basic concepts to help us reshape our lives by tapping into the restorative powers of nature to boost mental acuity and creativity, promote health and wellness, build smarter and more sustainable businesses, communities, and economies, and ultimately strengthen human bonds.
Louv makes a convincing case that we are entering the most creative period in history and that the twenty-first century will be the era of human restoration in the natural world. This encouraging and influential work offers renewed optimism while challenging us to rethink the way we live.
A book signing will follow the presentation. Visit richardlouv.com for more information.
