The 3rd Annual SXSW Eco takes place October 7-9. Last year’s conference included several great panels on local food and farms, and several were up for vote this year in the panel-picker through May 27th. This event connects systems influencers in tech, design, behavior change and more.
There is exciting programming to be announced on June 20 and there is time to apply to Place by Design, the new public space design competition, through July 31.
Two of the Distinguished Speakers to this year’s conference are Rev. Lennox Yearwood Jr., President and CEO of the Hip Hop Caucus, and Daniel Katz, Co-Founder and Board Member of the Rainforest Alliance and Senior Program Director at The Overbrook Foundation. Both of these men are experts and advocates in human rights and social justice and are sure to make an impact in October. Daniel will also be a Judge of the Social Impact category of the Startup Showcase. More speaker announcements are anticipated this month.
