Children & Nature Network announces the Louv Prize for Innovation in Nature Connection

THE WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED MAY 12….UNTIL NEXT YEAR

The Richard Louv Prize for Innovation in Nature Connection is open to any individual doing exemplary work to advance equitable access to nature in their community or region. The Richard Louv Prize recognizes innovative strategies for creating regular access to the benefits of nature everywhere children live, learn and play.

We believe equitable access to nature is achieved when systemic barriers to nature are removed and all members of a community — regardless of race, income, ability, identity or address — have regular opportunities to spend time in healthy outdoor spaces that are nearby, safe, welcoming and culturally relevant.

The Children & Nature Network created The Richard Louv Prize to honor the visionary leadership and contributions of its co-founder and Chair Emeritus, Richard Louv.  His books have been translated and published in 24 countries, and his landmark book, Last Child in the Woods, helped launch an international movement to connect children, families and communities to nature.
