More information: In 2013-2014 the Human Impacts Institute is partnering with the Transatlantic Climate Bridge Program of Germany to explore how we can make climate change personal to our communities and re-communicate climate issues to the American public in creative and engaging ways through our “Creative Climate” Human Impacts Salons series. Working with local partners in eight U.S. cities and in Berlin, this year-long tour bring together creative visionaries with community leaders, environmental experts, and activists in a salon-style event of performance and in-depth discussion to highlight local action, resources, and solutions to addressing one of the most pressing issues of our times–climate change.
Human Impacts Institute inspires action for strong communities and a healthy environment through hands-on education, coalition building and using arts and culture for social good.  As a non-profit organization based in Brooklyn, NYC, we strive to make the environment personal and support the amazing work being done in communities across the globe.
