Human Impacts Bay Area: Innovations for the Climate Breakthrough

The Human Impacts Institute (HII) is headed to the Bay Area for a night of art and conversation around innovative ways to tackle climate change. From decision-making apps to video games to algae fuel, see what innovations are going to change the world.
