As part of Climate Week NYC, the Human Impacts Institute launched its Ten Days of Climate Action. The goal of the Ten Days was to use creative art installations around varying topics concerning climate change to inspire curiosity and conversations with passers-by on often overwhelming issues. Community members were also asked to become a part of the solution through a variety of public engagement activities, such as video journals and petitions.
The Ten Days was a great success, engaging tens of thousands of locals and tourists alike with thought-provoking art and conversations on climate throughout the City.

Day 9: Climate Guilt
Human Impacts Institute’s founder Tara DePorte spent the day roller-skating around Times Square offering free climate counseling. Using the kitsch visual of a 1940′s cigarette girl, the performance caught the attention of thousands. Many indulged their curiosity and received personal advice for how to relieve feelings of guilt concerning climate change or had their questions about climate change answered by DePorte.
