Question

Which solar powered device is your favorite?

20th Mar 2014

Today, the whole world is relying heavily on fossil fuels and nuclear power to generate energy. The result is a system that lacks diversity and security, threatens people’s health, jeopardizes the stability of Earth's climate, and robs future generations of clean air, clean water, and energy independence. Fortunately, renewable energy resources such as wind, solar, bioenergy, and geothermal are capable of meeting a significant proportion of the world's energy needs, and can help alleviate many of the problems mentioned above while providing other important benefits.

As Scouts, we are passionate about nature and sustainability. Nature and the environment are part of our Scout Life, Method and Spirit. World Scouting is actively working with many partners in the environmental field to make a difference. One way is for Scouts all over the world to promote the use of renewable energy sources, of which one is generating energy from the Sun (Solar Energy).

If you had the opportunity to promote one device that uses solar energy in Scouting, which of the following would be your favorite?

1. Solar campfire
2. Solar cooker
3. Solar tent
4. Solar lamp/torch
