International Exhibition Celebrates Environmental Efforts of our Southern Neighbor
DALLAS (April 22, 2019) – Earthx2019 will debut an EarthxMexicoPavilion that will recognize and celebrate the environmental efforts of the United States’ southern neighbor. Following EarthxMexico in Mexico City, EarthX’s first foray as an international brand in November 2018, the EarthxMexico Pavilion at Fair Park will expand on the importance of taking our dialogue about the planet beyond borders.
In addition to featuring cultural art projects, the EarthxMexico Pavilion will highlight trans-national partnerships like the International Peace Park Project, a Texas-Mexico bi-national park, as well as Mexico’s efforts with sustainable and regenerative ranching, the MAR Reef Emergency, former and current Mexican environmental policies, and clean production. Other programming will showcase Mexican projects likeNanodrizas, Arcangello Constantini’s unique device which analyzes water, and the controversial Mayan Train, Mexico’s most ambitious infrastructure project in a century.
“Mexico has an incredible wealth of natural treasures, from the land to the people,” said Tony Keane, CEO of EarthX. “Given the close relationship our two countries maintain, it’s important to include both sides as we explore important ecological issues, such as how a border wall will impact wildlife, water and air, or the impacts of environmental crises on indigenous peoples.”
The EarthxMexico Pavilion will also touch on bio-design, business sustainability programs, environmental education, eco-friendly cleaning products, the plight of the vaquita porpoise, jaguar conservation, youth ecological activism, and environmental justice. Those participating and attending will include a curated mix of business, government, NGO’s, media and educational institutions.
As part of its EarthxBanquets programming, EarthX will also host the Isidro Baldenegro Lopez Banquet: Environment Without Borderson April 27 at Fair Park with Former Mexican President Felipe Calderonas keynote speaker. The program will also include Lorenzo Rosenzweig, General Director of the Fondo Mexicano para la Conservacion de la Naturaleza and Senator Eduardo Murat Hinojosa, President of the Mexican Senate’s Commission on the Environment and Climate Change.
Earthx2019will include three days of exhibitions, a film festival, music, entertainment, learning experiences, discussions, forums, and conferences making it, once again, the world’s largest gathering to positively discuss achievable solutions for environmental change. As the second largest hosted event in Dallas, EarthXattracts more than 130,000 people interested in creating a sustainable world for all living things, and a healthier planet for future generations.
