This huge international bestseller, fully revised for non-American readers, is now in ebook. Last Child in the Woods shows how our children have become increasingly alienated and distant from nature, why this matters, and what we can do to make a difference. It is unsentimental, rigorous and utterly original. 'A cri de coeur for our children' Guardian Camping in the garden, riding bikes through the woods, climbing trees, collecting bugs, picking wildflowers, running through piles of autumn leaves... These are the things childhood memories are made of. But for a whole generation of today's children the pleasures of a free-range childhood are missing, and their indoor habits contribute to epidemic obesity, attention-deficit disorder, isolation and childhood depression. This timely book shows how our children have become increasingly alienated and distanced from nature, why this matters and how we can make a difference. Last Child in the Woods is a clarion call, brilliantly written, compelling and irresistibly persuasive - a book that will change minds and lives.

The immediacy of Richard Louv's message in Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder galvanized an international movement to reconnect children with nature. Now, in The Nature Principle, Louv reaches even further with a powerful call to action for the rest of us. Our society, says Louv, has developed such an outsized faith in technology that we have yet to fully realize or even adequately study how human capacities are enhanced through the power of nature. Supported by groundbreaking research, anecdotal evidence, and compelling personal stories, Louv shows us how tapping into the restorative powers of the natural world can boost mental acuity and creativity; promote health and wellness; build smarter and more sustainable businesses, communities, and economies; and ultimately strengthen human bonds. As he says in his introduction, The Nature Principle is about the power of living in nature-not with it, but in it. We are entering the most creative period in history. The twenty-first century will be the century of human restoration in the natural world. Richard Louv makes a convincing case that through a nature-balanced existence-driven by sound economic, social, and environmental solutions-the human race can and will thrive. This timely, inspiring, and important work will give readers renewed hope while challenging them to rethink the way we live.

Nach den Umstürzen in der Arabischen Welt und der Atomkatastrophe von Japan steht fest: Wir brauchen eine Abkehr von fossilen Energien und mit Atomkraft ist die Wende nicht zu machen. Kanzlerin Merkel will Deutschland zum Ökostromland umbauen, doch der Ausstieg aus der Kernenergie hat seinen Preis für Bürger, Unternehmen und die Politik. Er wird die Fundamente der Gesellschaft verändern. Schon heute entstehen Tag für Tag ganze Stadtteile, in denen eine neue Ära von Mobilität, Wohnen, Bildung und Energiegewinnung Wirklichkeit wird – und Jeremy Rifkin ist ihr Chefplaner. Er berichtet von den Begegnungen mit den Topmanagern großer Konzerne wie IBM, Siemens, EnBW, Daimler und nimmt den Leser mit in die Hinterzimmer von Spitzenpolitikern wie Angela Merkel, David Cameron oder Romano Prodi, wo er unermüdlich für eine neue Welt eintritt. Sein Buch ist der faszinierende Werkstattbericht eines Insiders über Zukunftstechnologien, die grüne Exportschlager werden können.

Mindfulness and Educating Citizens for Everyday Life invites readers to explore the role mindfulness can play in mediating how we enact social life in today’s increasingly challenging and challenged world. The educators and researchers who have contributed to this book use mindfulness as a lens to address and untangle what is becoming a profoundly complicated way of being within the reality of global capitalism. Education is framed broadly – the research transcends the walls of classrooms and includes museums, nursing homes, hospitals, AA meetings, and homes. Hence, the chapters feature participants occupying varied social positions and spaces that may be situated in different parts of the globe. The authors address two overarching and dialectically related themes of mindfulness and wellness and collectively the chapters expand possibilities for readers to act mindfully in a world in which wellness and wellbeing are pervasive concerns as a fragile Earth adapts to a dynamic flux of human-led changes that threaten the future of lifeworlds that support humanity and myriad species that face extinction. The authors do not offer oversimplified solutions to dramatically switch direction and preserve life, as we have known it. Instead, the ideas that emerge from the research presented in this volume expand possibilities for informed conduct, self-help, and educating citizens with a goal of individuals and collectives transforming lifeworlds by embracing mindfulness-saturated ontologies.

Je mehr Hightech, desto mehr Natur brauchen wir! In seinem neuen Buch zeigt Richard Louv, wie wir trotz GPS, Smartphone, Technik und Internet wieder mitten in der Natur leben können. Eine Fülle von Ideen und Projekten aus aller Welt, dazu Interviews und persönliche Berichte, verbunden mit Ergebnissen aus Neurobiologie, Ökopsychologie und Städtebau – sie alle zeigen uns die Natur als Mittel der Entschleunigung, als unverzichtbaren Ruhepol im hektischen Alltag. Wenn wir es schaffen, ihre Kräfte zu nutzen, wird es uns möglich sein, gesünder, stressfreier und wieder intensiver zu leben. Und der Naturdefizitstörung, an der immer mehr Menschen leiden, ein Ende zu setzen. „Das Prinzip Natur beruht darauf, dass wir es bewerkstelligen, die Natur nicht nur zu erhalten, sondern Natur zu schaffen. Wo immer möglich, sollten wir der einheimischen Tier- und Pflanzenwelt Lebensräume bereitstellen, sei es auf den Dächern unserer Städte oder in kleinen Vorstadtgärten. Nur so wird es uns gelingen, naturverbundene Lebensgemeinschaften aufzubauen.“ Richard Louv

A fully revised and updated edition of the groundbreaking book on tackling the root causes of children’s attention and behavior problems rather than masking the symptoms with medication. More than twenty years after Dr. Thomas Armstrong's Myth of the A.D.D. Child first published, he presents much needed updates and insights in this substantially revised edition. When The Myth of the A.D.D. Child was first published in 1995, Dr. Thomas Armstrong made the controversial argument that many behaviors labeled as ADD or ADHD are simply a child's active response to complex social, emotional, and educational influences. In this fully revised and updated edition, Dr. Armstrong shows readers how to address the underlying causes of a child's attention and behavior problems in order to help their children implement positive changes in their lives. The rate of ADHD diagnosis has increased sharply, along with the prescription of medications to treat it. Now needed more than ever, this book includes fifty-one new non-drug strategies to help children overcome attention and behavior problems, as well as updates to the original fifty proven strategies.
