Thriving Earth Exchange (TEX)

Thriving Earth Exchange (TEX) helps communities leverage Earth and space science to build a better future for themselves and the planet. TEX does this by bringing together Earth and space scientists and community leaders and helping them combine science and local knowledge to solve on‐the‐ground challenges related to natural hazards, natural resources, and climate change. By 2019, Thriving Earth Exchange will launch 100 partnerships, engage over 100 members, catalyze 100 shareable solutions, and improve the lives of 10 million people. Through the Thriving Earth Exchange, local leaders and Earth and space scientists will create resilient communities that enrich the Earth. Working together, we will create solutions for the planet, one community at a time.
