Richard Louv. Richard Louv is a journalist, author and leader of a international movement aimed at connecting children and their families to nature.

In November, Richard was the keynote speaker at the A Place of Live conference in Whanganui. He also hosted public seminars in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Nelson.

Supported by groundbreaking research, anecdotal evidence, and compelling personal stories, Richard identifies some basic concepts that can help us reshape our lives.

He believes that by tapping into the restorative powers of nature, we can boost mental acuity and creativity; promote health and wellness; build smarter and more sustainable businesses, communities, and economies; and ultimately strengthen human bonds.

His seminar in Wellington was filmed and is now available for you to watch and enjoy. The film is an hour long, so grab a cup of tea and be prepared to be inspired!
