As we gear up to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, EarthX an international nonprofit environmental organisation gears up to conduct this years’ programme on virtual platforms. Dubbed the world’s largest environmental experience, the expo involves conferences, film screenings and educational experiences.

The main aim of EarthX is to equip the global community with resources, necessary education, and awareness that can lead to developing a more sustainable environment.

Known to be the largest event in the world of its kind, topping 137,000 attendees, it has grown tenfolds and played an instrumental part in bringing together government agencies, subject matter experts, environmental organisations, businesses, and academic institutions together under one roof.

“EarthX continues to move our mission forward to connect, collaborate and celebrate. Our mission is relevant, and this global situation is a great example of how interconnected we are to each other and the planet,” said Tony Keane, EarthX CEO.
