About CEC


MISSION: To foster dialogue, education, and collaboration on environmental issues in the Houston / Gulf Coast region.

Our vision is an environmental community recognized as a vital part of the fabric of our society.

We connect concerned citizens and community leaders with well over 100 diverse environmental organizations. We share, support, and enhance their efforts and environmental advocacy. We do this through our programs, which include events that enhance understanding, and publications that give a balanced perspective on environmental issues.
