EarthxYouth Cub Reporters is back!
Would you like to be a hero for our planet and help tell an exhibitor’s green story during EarthX?
The Planet is Calling You! Will you answer the call?
EarthxYouth pairs Cub Reporters, students ages 10-22, with professional video teams. Each team helps educate youth about the basics of storytelling and video production. Youth who are interested in interviewing, reporting, filming with a camera or working as a production assistant will receive a hands-on experience that encourages their passion to make an impact.
To participate, youth under 18 must have a signed parental waiver on file if not participating during a field trip. The experience will take approximately 45 minutes.
The finished news-style promos will be about 1-minute and can be used by exhibitors to promote themselves on social media. Check out some of last year’s videos here!

We want to provide a space to help inspire creative thinking, so you can create inspirational ideas that can be implemented on a global scale. We encourage you to come and join us make new things!

Go “No Containers” Loco.
Pledge to Give Up Styrofoam & Plastic Containers.
The world is using a crazy amount of plastic to-go containers that end up in our oceans and landfills - millions every day! Let’s say NO to styrofoam and plastic COntainers and redirect all that effort and energy towards finding better solutions that use biodegradable and low-impact re-usable materials.
Take the pledge to GO NOCO LOCO!
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.
