The climate conversation and film screening will be a part of the South by South Lawn event that the White House calls a “festival of ideas, art, and action.”
Obama attended South by Southwest earlier this year for a conversation on civic engagement. He “called on creative thinkers and entrepreneurs from across the country to help tackle our toughest challenges.”
The event on Monday, Oct. 3 will echo that message calling on all Americans to “discover their own way to make a positive difference in our country.”
