Richard Louv, renowned author of Last Children and chairman and co-founder of the Children & Nature Network, came to the Perth Concert Hall last Wednesday to talk more on Nature Deficit Disorder. He was invited by Western Australia’s Department of Sport and Recreation.
“Last Child in the Woods is the first book to bring together a new and growing body of research indicating that direct exposure to nature is essential for healthy childhood development and for the physical and emotional health of children and adults. More than just raising an alarm, Louv offers practical solutions and simple ways to heal the broken bond—and many are right in our own backyard.”

After listening to him, with 1500 other people at Concert Hall, on Nature Deficit Disorder we are pleased to say “Boshack has the right environment“.
