Beautiful Landscape

We are building a global cultural movement that's inspiring big, bold, and beautiful climate action. 

Arts and culture to inspire action for a just and thriving world.

What are your Human Impacts? Climate change is complex and often overwhelming. We also know that caring about something doesn’t necessarily lead us to meaningful impact.  We make action personal and practical by highlighting new voices of leadership, connecting you to solutions in engaging ways, and welcoming you to a diverse, creative community that is addressing the root causes of the climate crisis. 

How We Do It


Developing leadership skills and tools for resiliency through hands-on learning, mentorship and community service.


Amplifying extraordinary voices of leadership and innovation through personal narratives.


Celebrating creative approaches to communicating and engaging people in the future we want.


Exploring local solutions with diverse audiences in inspiring settings.

Our HII Youth Advisory Council just launched their new podcast, The Youth Climate Chat. In their first episode, they tackle the complex issues of environmental justice and extreme weather, and how these effects of our social institutions go hand-in-hand.


We are so inspired by their leadership and you will be too. They're young, they're here, and they're ready to change the world!
