The BSA Sustainability website posted my blog about the first few days of our expedition.
The words of Wayne Brock, former Chief Scout Executive of BSA, shed light on the reason for my trip to Antarctica:
Scouting was green when green was just a color.
Today, sustainability is critically important as a growing population taxes our planet’s limited resources. We in Scouting are intent on helping our members move from leaving no trace to leaving a positive legacy. We are working hard to integrate sustainability at every level of our organization and are committed to developing the next generation of responsible leaders.
