Kids Ecology Corps mission is to inspire young people to make environmental action part of their everyday life and generate a critical mass of people to create environmental harmony throughout the world.

What is critical mass?

Critical mass refers to the enormous energy generated when many people align their thoughts and actions toward a specific goal. Before long this focus brings about a systemic shift in attitude and action. What was impossible becomes a fresh opportunity.

What is environmental harmony?

Environmental Harmony is the healthy balance between man and earth’s universal ecosystems. This balance insures the earth’s ability to naturally renewal its resources and offers us an abundant economy and a healthy, sustainable future.

Kids Ecology Corps believes kids make a difference.

Once young people learn accurate information about their environment and how they influence it; and once they realize that they are the most important people on the planet, they take positive action to shape their own healthy and abundant futures. Empowered with this knowledge, KEC members experience increased self-esteem and feelings of accomplishment, while learning what a difference one person can make
