  • A primer on climate science
  • An overview of the energy sector
  • A discussion of different energy options and their pros and cons
  • A discussion of both regulatory and land use barriers to energy development
EarthxConservation Conference:
The Role of Private Land Stewardship in Texas Conservation
Friday, October 21
Ninety-five percent of the land in Texas is privately held, which means private land owners play an outsized role in determining the future conservation of the wild places and wildlife of the Lone Star State. This one-day conference will look at private land conservation practices and strategies through a variety of lenses, with panel discussions on private land management, water conservation, wildfires, and more.

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller will deliver a keynote address during lunch, which will be provided to attendees.

The DSO and EarthX Film are excited to present the U.S. premiere of The Way of the Rain – Hope for Earth, a multidisciplinary environmental performance created for orchestra, chorus, film, art, and with a special narration by Robert Redford.

The Way of the Rain
Saturday, October 22

Conceived by environmental artist Sibylle Szaggars Redford who collaborated with world-renowned artists Music Composer Tim Janis and Performance Film Artist Floyd Thomas McBee to create a piece that illustrates crucial environmental dilemmas through performance art. The Dallas Symphony Orchestra will be conducted by Julien Benichou.
