Naturally Vibrant Living – Urbanization – Could Our Living Further Away from Nature be Affecting Us?

Since the 19th Century, we’ve seen a rise in cities and people moving away from rural areas. This has resulted in our gradually living further and further apart and away from nature. Could this have an effect on us – and, if so, what type of effect? Diane Brandon is joined this week by Richard Louv, a Journalist and author of The Nature Principle: Human Restoration and the End of Nature-Deficit Disorder. Mr. Louv has pored over research studies done in many countries and has some surprising information to share with us about this. In fact, some countries have taken note of the research findings and are even instituting new programs as a result.
