Founded in 1970, the Kent Environmental Council is an incorporated 501(c)(4) citizen advocacy group under Ohio law. We focus our volunteer efforts in four areas: advocacy, education, engagement and networking.

As an advocate, KEC supports measures and initiatives that support a livable, sustainable environment. As educators, KEC asks questions and starts conversations about environmental issues. As engaged citizens, KEC works with stakeholders and policy-makers in the development of environmentally sound and sustainable public policies. And as part of a strong network, we connect with like-minded groups for more effective regional planning and environmental action.

What We Believe

Environmental systems in local communities and throughout the world are in danger of being irreparably damaged by human activities.

Humans are capable of learning and changing their behaviors.

There is still time to mend our ways and be responsible stewards of the environment.

By acting locally we can make a difference.
