EarthxFilm Youth Reports

EarthxFilmYouth Reports is a video series produced by EarthxFilm for the virtual EarthxFilm Festival (April 22-27, 2020) celebrating the 50th anniversary Earth Day. EarthxFilmYouth Anchors (ages 10-22) will have the opportunity to interview environmental experts, climate activists, and planet heroes through Zoom. Planet911 Reporters (ages 10-22) will submit short videos showcasing various environmental issues impacting their community to be included in the virtual EarthxFilm Festival showcase. Environmental experts will have the opportunity to be interviewed and to share their knowledge with our EarthxFilmYouth Anchors.

Some of our initial reports include interviews with youth activists like Taegen Yardley and youth from One Up Action, Earth Guardians, March For Science, Zero Hour, The Story of Plastic Filmmaker Deia Schosberg and Perfect World Foundation Co-Founder Lars Jacobsson. Here is a list of some of our EarthxFilm Youth Reports created for EarthxFilm 2020.

EarthxFilmYouth Cub Reporters will Return in 2021.

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?

EarthxFilmYouth 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!

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.

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!


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.
