EarthX is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that promotes a positive impact on the environment through education, events and curating a public platform for sustainable thought leadership. Founded in 2011 by philanthropist Trammell S. Crow, EarthX brings together community, business, policy, education and technology innovation to help create a greener future.
This three-day free event is held in April to celebrate progress, hope, and innovation and is the largest event in the world of its kind. EARTHx brings together environmental organizations, businesses, academic institutions, government agencies, speakers, interactive programming, and subject matter experts along with live music and sustainable beer and food pavilions. EARTHx creates a fun and engaging atmosphere for thought and experiential learning while encouraging attendees to be the change they wish to see in the world.
What started in 2011 as an outdoor event spanning five blocks of Flora Street in Dallas’ Arts District grew to occupy approximately one million square feet of indoor and outdoor event space in Dallas’ historic Fair Park. In 2017, EARTHx hosted more than 100,000 attendees, over 900 exhibitors and 260 speakers, becoming the largest annual environmental exhibition and programming initiative in the world.
EARTHx has also launched numerous year-round events to generate additional awareness and inspire people to get involved and help make a difference. These events include networking receptions with speaker panels, forums, film series, volunteer opportunities and environmental projects.
