The late Stetson Kennedy considered our personal relationship to our environment (Earth kinship) essential to the survival of humanity. Born in 1916, Kennedy grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, always close to nature’s beautiful bounty in the wooded areas, beaches, skies and waters of our land and determined to actively encourage stewardship of our precious natural resources. Stetson died in 2011, and his legacy lives on in the work of the Stetson Kennedy Foundation. In celebration of Stetson’s love of our earthly home and his tenacious battle to preserve it for all, the Stetson Kennedy Foundation has partnered with Folio Weekly Magazine on the occasion of his 103rd birthday to sponsor this EARTH KINSHIP Essay Contest for high school students.
