Ever wanted to make an impact on the world?
You already do.
No Impact Week is a chance to reflect on the impacts of our actions outside of ourselves. Participating means undergoing a week of heightened consciousness towards the environmental impacts of our actions. By becoming conscious of the different ways we affect the environment each day, and learning how to address that on an individual level, we can work towards making a healthier planet and incidentally becoming healthier people.

The No Impact Project is an international, environmental, nonprofit project, founded in the spring of 2009. It was inspired by the No Impact Man book, film, and blog, conceived and lived by Colin Beavan. Beavan and his family’s underwent a year-long experiment living a zero-waste lifestyle in New York City. Central to Beavan’s thesis is the notion that deep-seated individual behavior change leads to both cultural change and political engagement. Living low-impact provides a clear entry point into the environmental movement, a movement which aims to optimize the integrity of the systems that connect us all.
We are excited to present a diverse program for Columbia’s No Impact Week, featuring engaging speakers, films, workshops, parties, and more. The week is a unique collaboration of many Columbia students and faculty from different groups, schools, and departments.
We hope you enjoy our program!
