  • Green Mondays at ICP! Sept-December



    The Human Impacts Institute is excited to partner with the International Center of Photography to support conversation and action around environmental issues and creative communication. This fall, the photographs of Sebastião Salgado provide the springboard for an ambitious program of panel discussions, lectures, and film screenings addressing the urgent issue of climate change. On Green Mondays—a series of lectures and conversations held in the galleries—scientists, activists, photographers, and others will explain the science behind climate change analysis and address critical topics such as fracking, greening the economy, and decarbonizing the city. Finally, Friday-evening gallery walk-throughs with climate scientists will contextualize Salgado’s photographs, region by region.
