Richard Doherty

I am not a journalist. I am an environmentalist, and I love the earth and spending time outdoors and being with nature. I have a Bachelor's in Forest Management, a Master's in Environmental Studies and Education and a PhD in Communications. I taught outdoor and environmental education in the 1990s, and from 2005, mostly undergraduate students until just recently. I'm a musician, artist, and gardener. I think we can make the world a better place by connecting more with nature, having a hopeful attitude and through love and peace.

I'm also the chair of the International Environmental Communication Association (IECA). See https://theieca.org
