The Human Impacts Institute recently entered Green Mountain Energy’s Vote Solar for Good Non-Profit Facebook Challenge. After the votes were counted, HII became a winner of $1,500 worth of solar-powered utilities, specifically, a solar-powered generator! The generator will be housed atEast River State Park in Williamsburg, Brooklyn where HII hosts many of our free, and open to the public workshops and environmental education programs. The East River State Park does not have electricity so the generator will be a perfect addition, providing energy for other events and needs of the public park.
This coming Sunday, November 18th, HII will be hosting a press event at East River State Park at 2pm for the gifting of the solar generator. Following will be HII’s public launch of the new NYC Climate Coalition! Don’t miss the chance to take action with fellow New Yorkers and address the local impacts of climate change and disaster preparedness. The launch will involve training on climate outreach, networking, campaign development, and brainstorming on ways we, together, can reduce building emissions in NYC. The meeitng takes place at 3pm at Cubana Social located at 70 N. 6th St. between Kent Ave and Wythe Ave. RSVP on facebook here!
