Human Impacts DC is a unique event in supporting the local community in redefining and re-communicating climate change through your passions, experiences, and strengths. As one of eight different events across the U.S., these "salons" are creative spaces where diversity of viewpoints is key and tangible, collective action is the outcome.
At the Human Impacts Institute (HII), we inspire action for strong communities and a healthy environment through hands-on, service education, coalition building, and using arts and culture for social good. For more info: http://www.HumanImpactsInstitute.org
