What are your Human Impacts? Climate change is complex and often overwhelming. It’s well known that caring about something doesn’t necessarily lead us to make serious change. That’s the role of the Human Impacts Institute. The Human Impacts Institute (HII) is an environmental and social justice, arts-based nonprofit in Brooklyn, New York. Its mission is to use arts and culture to inspire environmental action for social good. It exists to make action personal and practical by highlighting new voices of leadership, connecting its audience to solutions in engaging ways, and welcoming them to a diverse, creative community that is addressing the root causes of the climate crisis, according to their website. 

The Human Impact Institute does that through education, storytelling, exhibitions and conversations. Education includes Youth Leadership Intensives. The intensives are virtual and in-person year-round youth leadership trainings that combine mentorship and hands-on learning. These experiences teach youth of all ages about local social and environmental justice issues, activism strategies, scientific communication, and community engagement. 

Exhibits include Creative Climate Awards, an annual global competition and festival, the awards showcase artists creating climate-inspired work that raises public awareness and sparks action. The 2023 CCA was a month-long festival of conversations, screenings, artist talks, performances, parties and a citywide exhibit. We hosted 15 events, projected 30 climate actions on the Manhattan Bridge, and reached more than 1,300 participants.  

The 2024 Creative Climate Awards will occur next spring, but if you’d like to meet the 2023 artists, check out, or click on the link in the Deeper Dive section of this story at Why does the Human Impacts Institute matter to us? Because it’s a membership organization; a community of connectors. It’s an international network of creatives, educators, activists and policy experts. Because it works in city streets, schools, galleries, and museums, bringing people together to promote equitable solutions in positive and creative ways.
