Global problems like climate change are so complex it's appropriate to think one solution may be to just get everyone important in one room to figure it out. SXSW Eco may that moment. Organized by the folks behind the massively popular South by Southwest (SXSW) Music, Film and Interactive conferences, SXSW Eco intends to be an important gathering of the best thinkers in business, government, non-profits and academia, as well as passionate people interested in learning more.
