Larry Mason, a self-proclaimed “accidental environmentalist,” veered from a storied corporate career to the Earthwatch Institute, where he is the chief executive officer. Earthwatch engages people worldwide in field science research, promoting the understanding and action necessary to create a sustainable environment. Mason claims that Earthwatch mobilizes its volunteers to go back to their communities with a new sustainable frame of mind. “For me, the Earthwatch model of objectivity through science — acknowledging that there are issues, but using the data to find the solutions — really matches my personal values.” Mason reveals. “As someone that was involved in growing businesses, developing economies [and] making people’s lives better from a financial standpoint, it’s interesting to see the objectivity of what the science is going to say and what responsible people are going to do.”
