EarthX has teamed up with the National Geographic Society for Earthx2020, held April 22 through 26, 2020 in Dallas to mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. With a commitment to ensure a healthier and more sustainable future for all, the two institutions will present interactive experiences and leading voices in environmental conservation.
Michael L. Ulica, president and COO of the National Geographic Society, says, "We look forward to engaging with the hundreds of thousands of attendees at Earthx2020 as we further our mission to illuminate and protect the wonder of our world."
National Geographic will host a space for more than 200,000 people to interact with staff and National Geographic Explorers to learn about the growing single-use plastic issue and understand what they can do to advance solutions. National Geographic Explorers will also take the stage at the expo, conference and banquets throughout the week, and participate in programming for the EarthxOcean Conference with a focus on ocean plastics.
For the EarthxFilm and EarthXR Festivals, films and immersive experiences produced, directed and/or created by the National Geographic Society and National Geographic Explorers will be screened from April 17 through 26.
