Event

An Evening with Richard Louv
North Cascades Institute and REI present an appearance by Richard Louv, author of the best-selling "Last Child in the Woods: Saving our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder" on Thursday, May 12 at 7 p.m. at Town Hall. Tickets are $10.
Richard Louv is a journalist and author of seven books about the connections between family, nature and community. His 2005 book, "Last Child in the Woods", translated into nine languages and published in 13 countries, has stimulated an international conversation about the relationship between children and nature. Hailed as "an absolute must-read" by the Boston Globe and "too tantalizing to ignore" by Audubon magazine, Last Child in the Woods is the inspiring work that proves children need nature as much as nature needs children.
Louv is also the chairman and co-founder of the Children & Nature Network, an organization helping build the movement to connect today's children and future generations to the natural world. Louv coined the term Nature-Deficit Disorder which has become the defining phrase of this important issue. In 2008, he was awarded the Audubon Medal, presented by the National Audubon Society. Prior recipients have included Rachel Carson, E. O. Wilson and President Jimmy Carter.
His most recent book, "The Nature Principle," focuses on the critical need of connecting humans with nature. Our society, says Louv, has developed such an outsized faith in technology that we have yet to fully realize or even adequately study how human capacities are enhanced through the power of nature. Supported by groundbreaking research, anecdotal evidence, and compelling personal stories, Louv shows us how tapping into the restorative powers of the natural world can boost mental acuity and creativity; promote health and wellness; build smarter and more sustainable businesses, communities, and economies; and ultimately strengthen human bonds.
As he says in his introduction, The Nature Principle is "about the power of living in nature, not with it, but in it. We are entering the most creative period in history. The twenty-first century will be the century of human restoration in the natural world."  
Richard Louv makes a convincing case that through a nature-balanced existence  driven by sound economic, social, and environmental solutions  the human race can and will thrive. This timely, inspiring, and important work will give readers renewed hope while challenging them to rethink the way we live. Following Louv's presentation, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and environmental writer William Dietrich will interview Louv about the important issues his new book raises. Book sales and signing will follow.
