Richard Louv

Biography of Lecturer

Richard Louv is a journalist and author of eight books about the connections between family, nature and community. Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder (Algonquin Books), translated into 13 languages and published in 20 countries, has stimulated an international conversation about relationships between children and nature. The Nature Principle: Human Restoration and the End of Nature-Deficit Disorder (Algonquin Books, 2011), offers a new vision for the future, in which our lives are as immersed in the natural world as they are in technology. This future, available to all of us right now, offers better psychological, physical and spiritual health for people of every age.

In 2008, Louv was awarded the Audubon Medal, presented by the National Audubon Society. Previous recipients include Rachel Carson, E. O. Wilson and President Jimmy Carter. In 2012, Louv delivered the closing keynote at the first White House Summit on Environmental Education. Louv has written for The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Times of London, and other major publications. He has appeared on many national TV shows, including NBC’s Today Show and Nightly News, the CBS Evening News, ABC’s Good Morning America, and NPR’s Morning Edition, Fresh Air, and Talk of the Nation.
