Austin, Texas plays host to South by South West, one of the leading innovation, ideas and tech conferences, and at the same time, it also hosted Goals House.
Goals House held its second Goals Night Out of 2023, where Mars Wrigley co-hosted an intimate dinner discussion on the importance of wellbeing and the interconnection of thriving people and planet. Octopus Energy then co-hosted a late-night drinks reception to champion technology’s role in fighting the climate crisis and empowering us all to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In the spirit of SDG 17, we convened uncommon collaborators in the hope to foster new partnerships and actionable outputs.
