Human Impacts NYC is a celebration of innovation and collaboration and part of our Human Impacts Salon series together with the German Consulate General. At the Human Impacts Institute, we use art and culture to inspire environmental action for social good. We envision a world in which each of us are active agents of social and environmental change; where culture and nature converge, not compete, and where our communities have equal access to the resources we need for dignity, happiness, and health.
