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 8: Working Together for Climate: Moving Planet
September 24 was designated as Moving Planet - a day for people around the world to put their demands for stronger environmental policy into action. The Human Impacts Institute co-sponsored the NYC Moving Planet with 350.org with a march down Broadway a rally outside the United Nations General Assembly. Additionally, HII’s Executive Director, Tara DePorte, was asked to speak at the UN rally about climate action.
