Climate CoLab at SXSW Eco


We’re coming to Austin!

SXSW EcoSouth by Southwest (SXSW) is best known for their famous spring film, music and media festivals.  But for the last six years, they have hosted an off-season conference focused environmental issues: SXSW Eco.  The conference, also held in Austin, TX, brings the high-energy, creative spirit of SXSW festivals to solving our world’s environmental challenges. As they write on their website, “SXSW Eco creates the space for business leaders, policy makers, innovators and designers to advance solutions that drive social, economic and environmental change.”

Laur Hesse Fisher, project manager, and Jenn Perron, community & partnerships manager, will be in Austin attending SXSW Eco Monday, October 10 and Tuesday, October 11.  Find us and say hi!
