Richard Louv, founder of the Children & Nature Network, made an international call-to-action with his writing on reconnecting kids to nature. He also introduced the term "nature deficit-disorder" to describe problems that result from spending so little time outdoors. In "The Nature Principle: Human Restoration and the End of Nature Deficit Disorder," Louv focuses on re-connecting adults to the natural world in the digital age. Original air date 03/18/14
