Start your morning with a 1.5 mile guided hike around Austin’s Greenbelt, from Barton Springs to Barton Skyway, and get a glimpse of one of the most popular trails in Texas’ capital city while making new connections and learning how you can include the outdoors in your curriculum.
Scattered throughout the SXSW EDU venues, custom lounges supported by sponsors offer a unique space to relax, recharge, and connect with others.
Meet ups are topic-focused networking events selected through PanelPicker®, which give communities at SXSW EDU the chance to connect with others who share similar passions or interests. Meet ups can take a variety of forms including group activities, facilitated networking, or focused discussions.

Mix and mingle at a number of special events including happy hours, parties, and more.
Guided, hour-long walking tours around downtown provide a unique opportunity to experience Austin like a local, meet fellow attendees, and connect with the vibe and culture on a new level.
