KCET, July 12

How do you envision a better state?

KCET, a service of KCETLink, will be at The Green Tent this Sunday with its 50th Anniversary Community Kiosk and hopes you will come by to let them know how you envision a better California. Postcards will be on hand for you at the kiosk to fill out that then become part of the exhibit. Afterwards, KCET will post all the responses on its website at, amplifying your ideas to an even wider audience.

KCET is eager to see your ideas on “How Do You Envision a Better California?” and is excited to hear your thoughts on what inspires you about our state and what KCET means to you. There will be “Save the Elephants” coloring pages for the kids and the first 20 people who fill out a postcard will receive an exclusive KCETLink stainless steel water bottle. The following week, a postcard will be drawn to win a pair of KCET 50th anniversary car shades. 

For more than 50 years, KCET has played an important role in the lives of many Californians, as a source of learning, enlightenment, and inspiration. Now as part of its 50th anniversary celebration serving Southern and Central California, KCET developed the Community Kiosk campaign which has been visiting sites all over Los Angeles this past year.

This is not the first time KCET has made an appearance in Mar Vista. Just last year, concerned about the water shortage,’s “Living” columnists visited the 6th annual Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase for suggestions on what to do Beyond the Lawn: Mar Vista’s Green Gardens.  Also Mar Vista homeowners were featured in a special segment of KCET’s award-winning SoCal Connected series entitled “The Lawn Goodbye: California’s Water Woes.”

Addressing environmental issues has been a major commitment for the station for decades.  SoCal Connected has explored important environmental issues in all of its six seasons with multiple segments and a yearly environmental special. This year the show aired environmental stories including “Treated Human Waste as Fertilizer – The Stinky Truth”; “California’s Water Supply: On Shaky Grounds”; and “Urban Farming in a Food Desert Oasis.

In addition, has developed a leading environmental resource on its website, ReDefine, that covers news and critical analysis of change in California's environment. The site offers critical insights into the way we relate to our environment, from air to water and wildlife to energy.
Earth Focus, a long-running environmental series that airs regionally on KCET and nationally on Link TV, KCETLink’s satellite network, covers issues that impact us locally and globally.
