The Sustainable Living Association is launching a 4-part event and engagement program focusing on climate change, according to a press release from the non-profit organization.

The program is called The Impact Series, and focuses on helping people understand how their daily actions can positively impact the environment, as well as how certain behavioral changes can help to combat climate change.

"Collectively, we can raise awareness and learn how to communicate the effects of climate change while shifting our mindset to better practices and behaviors that create stronger and more resilient communities," said Executive Director of the Sustainable Living Association Kellie Falbo.

According to Falbo, the ultimate goal of the program is to create an open dialogue about climate change so that action can be taken.

The series begins on Thursday, August 22nd with a free screening James Balog's environmental documentary The Human Element at the Lyric in Fort Collins.

Following the screening, the co-producer of the film and several area experts on climate change will be around to participate in a Q&A session with the audience. Educational booths will also be at the event to answer any questions attendees might have about the film.

The entire program will take place over the course of a year, so the other three events are yet to be determined. However, more information about the kick-off event can be found here.
