Earlier this year, President Obama stopped by South by Southwest to issue a challenge to creative thinkers, innovators, and entrepreneurs across the country. President Obama stated;
“We are at a moment in history where technology, globalization, our economy are changing so fast. How can we start coming up with new platforms, new ideas, new approaches across disciplines and across skill sets to solve some of the big problems that we’re facing today?”
In Austin, he called on creative thinkers and entrepreneurs from across the country to help tackle our toughest challenges, and to answer the above question. On Monday, October 3rd 2016, fans celebrated that spirit of innovation at South by South Lawn, a White House festival of ideas, art, and action.
At SXSL, many celebrated the inspiring work that many Americans have already accomplished—asking everyone to discover their own way to make a positive difference in our country.
President Obama joined conversation with Academy Award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio and climate scientist Dr. Katharine Hayhoe about the importance of protecting the one planet we’ve got for future generations.
Following the conversation, attendees watched the domestic premiere of Leonardo DiCaprio’s new climate documentary film titled “Before the Flood,” presented by National Geographic in a first-of-its-kind film screening on the South Lawn of the White House.
Whether you love him–or hate his policies, one thing you can’t deny about President Obama–he is one cool cat.
