If 10 million scouts teach their parents, like my son did me, to change to LED light bulbs and to change their behaviors in driving, that would make a huge difference.
As the Sustainability Advisor for the Boy Scouts of America, Scott Harmon is developing a sustainability strategy and executing projects within that strategy. Harmon brings to this position his experience as a Silicon Valley Sustainability and Business Development executive. In 2008 Harmon's son Jon, an Eagle Scout, opened his father's eyes to the urgent environmental problems facing the world. That change in worldview ignited Harmon's passion to make a difference by pulling together teams of stakeholders to first create and then launch the sustainability merit badge at the 2013 National Scout Jamboree.
Harmon holds a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Purdue University, an MBA from Pepperdine University, and is an Eagle Scout.
