Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

"Our Environmental Destiny"


Environmental speaker Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is chief prosecuting attorney for the Hudson Riverkeeper. Riverkeeper’s mission is to safeguard the ecological integrity of the Hudson River, its tributaries and the watershed of New York City (protecting the city's drinking water supply) by tracking down and stopping polluters. Since 1983, Riverkeeper has investigated and brought to justice more than 300 environmental lawbreakers.


He is also the president of the Waterkeeper Alliance which is an international advocacy organization founded by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to empower 137 local Waterkeeper programs who defend local waterways from polluters. Waterkeeper Alliance provides legal, scientific, and organizational resources to ensure effective and democratic vehicles for citizens to protect their most precious resource – water.


A high-profile political speaker and activist, he has used numerous media outlets, including his 2004 book, Crimes Against Nature, to call into question the environmental policies of the United States.


As a keynote speaker, Kennedy delivers a passionate defense of the environment and of how its continued neglect affects the future of the planet and the health of future generations. He advocates a direct and aggressive approach against entities whose policies accelerate pollution and maintain the status quo. Kennedy calls upon all people to actively make a difference in their world.
