Does thinking about our planet’s future conjure up images of a post-apocalyptic dystopia stripped of nature (think Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, only grimmer)? Well, Richard Louv, has a different vision. And the author of the landmark bestseller Last Child in the Woods urges us to change our vision, too. He suggests that if we reconceive environmentalism and sustainability, they will evolve into a larger movement that will touch every part of society.
This New Nature Movement taps into the restorative powers of the natural world to boost mental acuity and creativity; promote health and wellness; build smarter and more sustainable businesses, communities, and economies; and ultimately strengthen human bonds. Supported by groundbreaking research, anecdotal evidence, and compelling personal stories, Louv offers renewed optimism while challenging us to rethink the way we live.
Happy Earth Day, indeed!
