The Trust for Public Land
EarthX‘s environmental mission to educate and inspire people to action aligns with The Trust for Public Land’s mission: To create parks and protect land for people, ensuring healthier, livable communities for generations
TPL has developed a suite of data tools called Smart Growth for Dallas to help the city of Dallas use a strategic and data driven approach to increase park access in the city. This unique geo-mapping database pinpoints neighborhoods where parks, trails, and trees will have the greatest social, environmental, and health benefits. With the use of this tool, TPL has increased 10-minute walk access for homes in Dallas from 54% to 69% since 2014.
According to TPL, the EarthX event has introduced them to a new advisory board member and has helped generate awareness on the 10-minute walk campaign among public citizens.
