      The Nature Movement with Richard Louv

      "The future will belong to the nature-smart those individuals, families, businesses, and political leaders who develop a deeper understanding of the transformative power of the natural world and who balance the virtual with the real. The more high-tech we become, the more nature we need." --Richard Louv An Evening With Richard Louv: Join the New Nature Movement Sanderling Waldorf School invites you to an unforgettable evening with author and visionary Richard Louv. The evening will include a lecture and interactive Q{e_description}amp;A session with Louv, who is a journalist and author of eight books about the connections between family, nature and community. His newest book is "The Nature Principle: Human Restoration and the End of Nature-Deficit Disorder" (Algonquin), which offers a new vision of the future, in which our lives are as immersed in nature 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. "Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder" (Algonquin), translated into 10 languages and published in 15 countries, has stimulated an international conversation about the relationship between children and nature. Louv is also the founding chairman of the Children {e_description}amp; 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. 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, CBS Evening News, ABC's Good Morning America, and NPR's Morning Edition, Fresh Air, and Talk of the Nation. Between 1984 and 2007 he was a columnist for The San Diego Union-Tribune and has been a columnist and member of the editorial advisory board for Parents magazine. Louv was an advisor to the Ford Foundation's Leadership for a Changing World award program. He serves on the board of directors of ecoAmerica and is a member of the Citistates Group. He has appeared before the Domestic Policy Council in the White House as well as at major governmental and professional conferences, nationally and internationally, most recently as keynote speaker at the American Academy of Pediatrics National Conference.

For nearly 100 years, Waldorf Education's goal has been to teach a respect for nature while encouraging the development of the "whole" child: head, heart and hands.
