“Vitamin N” with Richard Louv

"Vitamin N" with Richard Louv

Seen in 46 states and 58 countries, Hospice Santa Barbara's illuminate Community Education and Engagement Series is a FREE virtual series of renowned speakers who address the feelings and questions that accompany our challenging time – speakers that will inspire, educate, encourage deeper inquiry and action, create community discussion, and help bring people closer together.

On October 19, Richard Louv, an American non-fiction author and journalist, joined us for a virtual talk and panel Q&A with WYP board member, Devon Azzam, and Adriana Marroquin, Community Initiatives Manager at Hospice.

Richard Louv is best known for his seventh book, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder. Louv discussed the movement to connect children to the natural world and how the connection to nature enhances our physical, mental, and spiritual health, from childhood until the end of life.
