The club was started in 1992, by then known as Environmental Science Club. It drew members from the faculty of Environmental studies. This was later found to be limiting as the environment belong to all and concerns all. A new perspective was introduced into the club to give it more holistic outlook composition and view of environment– KUNEC thus came to being and the membership from within and outside the university. The club has operated under various officials with cyclic fluctuations: to date a new breed of student took leadership of the club with serious restricting and revitalization agenda to give the club a ‘corporate outlook.
The club envisages the development and enhancement of dynamic vibrant environmentalism through the harnessing and application of student resources in order to produce an environment that is mutually supportive with development and respect the integrity of ecological processes ad genetic diversity. Hence it is dynamic and vibrant student environmentalism for sustainability
