Puyallup, Wash. – Richard Louv, author of “The Nature Principle: Reconnecting with Life in a Virtual Age,” advocates for a healthier balance between technology and nature so that we can experience the best of both.
Louv will bring his message to Pierce College Puyallup when he speaks at 7 pm Thursday, May 2, at the Arts and Allied Health Theatre. Louv’s appearance is part of the Pierce College Puyallup Presents Artists and Speakers Series.
Louv encourages a worldwide return to the restorative powers of nature to boost mental acuity and creativity, promote health and wellness, and build smarter and more sustainable businesses, communities and economies.
He is best known for his earlier book, “Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder,” which sparked an international movement to reconnect children with nature and introduced the term “nature-deficit disorder.”
