This historic and momentous gathering also brought worldly discussions intriguing conversation during the Climate Resilient Cities Symposium. Global Green co-hosted the symposium in Dallas with it’s partners National League of Cities, American Sustainable Business Council, We Are Still In, Texas A& M, and C2ES.
With environmental disasters taking place in cities across the country, city leaders and community stake holders are beginning to recognize the vital need to think, plan, and act in order to improve their resilience in the face of future environmental disturbances. The symposium generated a thoughtful call to action as a result.
The attendees of the EarthX Exposition weekend were able to learn more about Global Green and Green Cross International. Global Green invited visitors an opportunity to attend the symposium as well as share their stories about how their community is being affected by climate change. The three day event hosted more than 100,000 attendees, over 900 exhibitors, and 260 speakers, marking it the largest annual environmental exhibition and programming initiative in the world.
Global Green was able to spread their mission, to foster a global value shift toward a sustainable future, with hundreds of thousands of like minded individuals cohesively working for the same goal of securing a more sustainable planet.
