Scouts believe in putting nature first. We want to protect the environment that we enjoy while camping, hiking, playing, and learning in the great outdoors. In a world facing a climate crisis and alarming rates of wildlife and nature loss, Scouts are leaders in sustainability and climate action, committed to protecting, preserving and restoring our planet. We're all about creating a better, greener world and you're invited!
Become an Environmental Leader: Join the Earth Tribe
The Earth Tribe is a global community of young people who are passionate about the environment and are actively engaged as global citizens to protecting our planet.
Through Earth Tribe Challenges, young people learn how to better connect with nature, become champions for sustainability, take action to restore nature and stop climate change. Learn more about how to join this global community of environmental leaders.
