We are so pleased to announce that Founder & CEO of Like A Local Tours, Lauren Beebe, has joined the board of the Human Impacts Institute (HII). HII’s mission is to create and share innovative approaches to tackling social and environmental issues.
Their programs pair artists and scientists to engage new audiences in climate change solutions, bring youth to the boardroom, and get policy makers’ hands dirty as they care for local street trees.
“We are action-oriented, and our passion is to help people make a difference, in their own unique way.”
HII Executive Director Tara DePorte says, “We know there’s a gap between knowing, understanding, and taking action. Our solution to closing this gap is simple: We help people of diverse ages and backgrounds personally connect to the most pressing environmental issues of our times, and give them the tools needed to take positive, long-term actions.”
Be sure to check out their ongoing list of fantastic events and other ways to get involved!
