Charles Scott

left the corporate world to become a family adventurer. He worked  at Intel Corporation for 14 years before deciding to focus his  energy full-time on writing, speaking and doing endurance  challenges with his family linked to environmental causes. In the  summer of 2009, he and his eight-year old son cycled the length of  mainland Japan, 2,500 miles in 67 days. The United Nations named  them “Climate Heroes”, as they raised money for a tree planting  campaign and promoted the UN’s efforts to combat climate change. In  the summer of 2011, Scott cycled 1,500 miles around Iceland with  his ten-year-old son and four-year-old daughter. His book about the  Japan ride, Rising Son, offers an inspiration to anyone who feels  the urge to shake things up and reminds the reader of the most  precious gift a parent can give a child: time. He publishes pieces  regularly on Huffington Post and CNBC.
