Raoul first developed a passion for the environment while hiking in Hawaii, feeling a deep connection with the earth in his experience. A firm believer in the value of experiential education, Raoul wants every young person to have the opportunity to understand the important interconnections of life on our planet. Raoul is the founder and publisher of Insight Editions and its subsidiaries, Mandala Publishing and Earth Aware Editions, which presents diverse voices of today’s leading environmentalists, photojournalists, cultural commentators, artists, and activists.
In addition to NatureBridge, Raoul supports many organizations in the field of sustainability and runs a 42-acre organic farm on the Hamakua Coast in Hawaii.
