Sustainability Merit Badge
The Sustainability Merit Badge offers an in depth look at how we can preserve natural resources for future generations by making sustainable choices in our daily lives. During this program Scouts will investigate issues related to sustainability in 5 key areas: water, food, community, energy and consumerism.
This badge introduces scouts to the complex web of ecological, economic and social factors that we all must consider as we seek ethical solutions to environmental problems. We examine our own lives during this badge and look for ways we can increase our ability to engage in the world as environmentally responsible citizens. Scouts will get to build conservation plans that they track and test over the course of a month and then return to discuss lessons learned and develop strategies for positive action. Finally, we will work together to brainstorm ways to design sustainable communities where natural systems are protected and future generations thrive.
