CONFERENCE – APRIL 23-26
EarthxConference is a series of conferences that convene for the purpose of cultivating relationships and forming partnerships between mission-driven advocates, investors, accelerators, researchers and other concerned world citizens. The conference goals are to educate, promote and instigate activities that sustain environmental initiatives with a substantial, positive impact on all living things and on our planet.
STAR's own Executive Director Jordan Fengel will be speaking at the Conference! Check back here for details.
EXPO is a major annual public event held around Earth Day in April to celebrate progress, hope, and innovation. Topping 137,000 in 2018, it has grown to become the largest event in the world of its kind. EXPO-Earthx2019 brings together environmental organizations, businesses, academic institutions, government agencies, speakers, interactive programming, and subject matter experts along with live music, art and food. EarthX creates a fun and engaging atmosphere for thought and experiential learning.
STAR has decided to cancel all in-person meetings, including any council-related events, such as the Texas Reuse Tour, until further notice.
We are working with the Reuse Council, the tour locations and hotel and will reset the Texas Reuse Tour for this summer. We will keep members and attendees apprised of any new developments through email and postings on our website.
We ask that registered attendees:
Cancel their individual respective hotel reservations to ensure reservations are canceled accurately.
If you have a paid registration, we are offering the following options:
