In the wake of EXPO EarthX2019, EarthX staff members Melinda Garde, Caisey Hoffman, and Andi Johnson have worked to establish a network of young, driven, and environmentally conscious individuals. Known as YPX, this new association provides a medium for like-minded young professionals to mingle, get involved, and form valuable professional connections.
YPX meets regularly, hosting a variety of speakers and film screenings, and promoting conferences and initiatives to help members make a difference in the green community. Past YPX speakers include EarthX founder Trammell S. Crow and City of Dallas environmental quality director James McGuire.
Along with access to speeches and films, members are provided unique opportunities to learn about and get involved with initiatives through their network of peers. They support weekend cleanups, social media campaigns, and other avenues for local activism. As a proud extension of EarthX, YPX aims to expand to cities throughout the country and grow its base of enthusiastic members in years to come.
