Austin continues to be one of the fastest growing cities in the country and part of an explosive global trend in population growth, urbanization, and energy consumption. Business as usual is not a sustainable path forward for our city or the planet. What are the major emerging technologies, policies, and trends that power our homes, businesses, and transportation now and into the future? Go beyond the headlines to discuss what is Austin doing at the forefront of this energy & technology revolution.

We welcome your participation! Please send us your questions, answers, and prognostications in advance at info@austinforum.org.

Admission to the Austin Forum is always free.

The Austin Forum accepts donations of used cell phones, smart phones, tablets, and e-book readers at all our events. All devices will have a factory reset and be set up as new by the team at Austin Pathways’ nationally-recognized “Unlocking the Connection” initiative, which will connect every public housing resident with a digital device, digital literacy training, and a free or very low-cost internet connection. Your donated phone can change lives and help close Austin's digital divide, thanks to Austin Pathways.

Thanks to Austin Public Library for their partnership.
