About this Episode

Tara DePorte is a self-proclaimed expert generalist. She described her typical work week as wading in the Hudson one day to wearing a suit and talking over policy at the UN the next. In 2011, Tara started the Human Impacts Institute as a way to help make the conversation around conservation fun and exciting. She knew that if she wanted to help turn the tide on talking about trash, pollution, and conservation, she had to reach people in a way that mattered.

They recently launched a project called The Hub, HII’s membership program. Check it out and consider helping to support this amazing institution and everything they make happen here in NYC. They produce some amazing content and help fund artist work that promote the conversation around climate change. Check out this funny video on their site called Think Like A Kid.
