About
EarthxEDU


EarthX is dedicated to discovering, researching and innovating practices that impact and reshape our world through environmental education and awareness.

To create a sustainable future, we must educate our students on the impact that our actions have on our world today.

The goal of this curriculum is to create projects that guide students to understand our Earth, human impact and their role in creating a sustainable future.

Our Earth.
Our Home.

Volunteer


Teachers, here’s an opportunity to get yourself and your students engaged and involved in Earthx2020 and earn volunteer and community service hours while learning about the latest eco-­‐friendly initiatives, discoveries, research, innovations, policies, and practices reshaping our world.

This year EarthX expects to break all previous attendance records and we need volunteers to work with programs and activities appealing to a wide range of knowledge levels and interests – from providing logistics support at events to enlightening children on how best to make a positive difference in the world.

Take the EarthX pledge to Strike Out Straws

Over 500 million plastic straws are used every day in the U.S. Once they are discarded, single-use plastic straws, which are made from petroleum, require over 200 years to break down, which effectively adds to plastic debris in our landfills and the plastic already covering one third of the world’s oceans.

Add your name to our list of environmentally conscious businesses and Earthlings who are determined to remove single-use plastics from the environment.
