Just ten days ago, the Sustainable Development Goals were adopted at the United Nations. Today we are at SXSW Eco.

Hundreds of innovative actions, their creators, admirers and leaders converge for three days at the Austin Convention Center. They are a living proof of our challenges but also of our social and environmental development. The achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals is happening now and everyday counts. Dive into the #SXgood conversation and have a look by yourself.

All 17 global goals are represented at SXSW Eco with a wide array of innovations addressing the most pressing issues of our world. The #SXgood Hub, presented by the United Nations Foundation, is inviting everyone to spin the Global Goals Wheel. That is the best analogy for this conference: A unique opportunity to learn about the global agenda through various experiences in a very dynamic pace. From #BlackLivesMatter to virtual reality. Oceans, design thinking, green buildings, law, startups and life in space are just a few of the topics covered on this first day.

“The most important resource in space will be people…and those people need resources.” – Chris Lewicki. Redefining Natural Resources – Turning Sci-Fi into Science Fact.
