Like the other SXSW events, Eco has quickly become well-known for bringing a diverse array of people together, leading to new, unexpected connections and fruitful collaborations. Over the past two years we've come to know our growing community and their fields of interest, and we used this knowledge to determine eight topical programming themes that define this year's conference. The themes are: Behavior, Education & Health, Business, Climate Change, Design, Energy, Food & Agriculture, Land & Water and Policy & Activism. Much of our programming will explore connections between these topics so sessions are likely to appear in multiple categories. Our keynotes and plenary sessions will also provide a whole-systems perspective, connecting the dots for our diverse registrants. All of our programming highlights innovation in these areas and includes technology and other factors that are crucial to achieving sustainability and resilience.
The theme icons are located on the sidebar of every page and on our program homepage–click your icon of choice to discover related programming and special events!
