Earth Day is approaching. The day that, for many, makes us feel guilty with the inevitable reminder of how horrible humans treat the planet. Providing us with food, shelter, water, and clean air, Earth gives so much to us. It’s time we do something in return. Luckily, EarthX can show and tell us just how.
Founded by green-minded mogul Trammell Crow, EarthX has become one of the world’s largest forums dedicated to environmental education awareness. It began in 2011 spanning only a few blocks down Flora Street, to now occupying approximately one million square feet of indoor and outdoor space in Dallas’ Fair Park. EarthX 2017 saw a crowd of more than 100,000, more than 900 exhibitors,and 260 speakers — and organizers are expecting another record turnout this year.
With its mission statement: “Connecting a global community to create a sustainable world for all life a future generations”, the three-day event incorporates conferences, films, interactive material, and educational symposiums to celebrate Earth while learning more about it. Conferences and expos are aimed at any and all earth issues, addressing everything from oil and gas to climate change to recycling to solar energy. A complete day-to-day guide and more information can be found here.
In addition to the conferences, there is the EarthxFilm Festival. This event showcases movies that explore conservation, climate change and the environment. See environmental heroes in action as they take one step everyday to change the world while motivating others to get involved. Tickets to the featured films can be found here. Movies will be shown through 22.
Don’t forget about the pre-party, EarthxGlobal Gala at the Perot Museum on April 20. Purchase tickets here to be a part of the eco-star-studded evening that celebrates and supports the values of EarthX. Plus, with live auction prizes such as an eight-day safari and a luxurious trip to Bora Bora, there’s plenty to bid on.
