Our mission is to promote environmental literacy by empowering youth to become environmental leaders.
Why We Care
As the human population continues to grow, the global issue of climate change becomes ever more daunting. From the growing frequency of natural disasters to rising rates of asthma, combating the future’s major challenges requires us to understand and confront our increasingly complex effects on the Earth.
Headquartered in the American South, we’ve learned to specialize in navigating the undue politicization of environmental issues — and cutting across sticky partisan lines. Promoting natural science education to inspire the next generation of sustainability leaders is how we, as young people, will secure our future. We hope you’ll join us.
The Student Environmental Education Coalition (SEEC) was founded by Kenneth Xu while attending high school, after he realized that young people pay most attention to what other young people have to say. SEEC is a student-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization led by an 8-member board of directors composed entirely of North Carolinians.
