MCE is hosting our next Kansas City Eco-Org Networking Event for organizations in the Kansas City region that are working to improve our environment.

The goals of these events are:

  • Relationship building: A space where employees/volunteers from environmental organizations can meet and understand each other
  • Information dissemination: What does your organization have going on, what would be helpful to have shared, how can others help to share that information
  • Collaboration: What needs to be done that isn’t being done and how could groups work together to address it, what is your organization not able to do that others could help with, where do you need more volunteers or participants, how can we support one another

These events are free to all attendees, but registration is required.

Attendance is limited to individuals who work with or who volunteer with organizations in the Kansas City area who are working to improve the environment.
