EarthX convenes the worlds largest environmental expo, conference and film festival. Founded in 2011 as Earth Day Dallas by environmentalist and businessman Trammell S. Crow, the Texas-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization promotes environmental awareness and impact through conscious business, nonpartisan collaboration and community-driven sustainable solutions.
The world’s largest environmental gathering is going virtual from Dallas. EarthX attracted over 177k to Fair Park last year, but in light of what is happening the EXPO has been canceled and EarthX will host its Earthx2020 Conferences and Film Festival virtually from April 23-25 and into May while some will be moved to the fall. The 50th Earth Day Celebration will be livestreamed on April 22. The virtual experience will be layered with EarthxFilm Festival programming of select 2020 films, which will then present its physical Film Festival in the fall along with the EarthxGlobalGala and the world premiere of The Way of the Rain – Hope For Earth, directed by Sibylle Szaggars Redford with a special narration – spoken word by Robert Redford.
