Shake off your winter apathy and start getting active in your community again. Start with an open house discussing master plans to accompany the overhaul of the North Temple viaduct. Then, help raise awareness at the Brain Injury Association of Utah’s charity run. Finally, learn about the dangers of climate change with a free screening of a Sundance Film Festival movie.

North Temple Open House
Thursday, May 13
With the North Temple Viaduct gone and the overpass covered in orange cones, the Salt Lake City Redevelopment Agency wants residents to look beyond the dust of construction and consider the future of North Temple. This open house will examine how the project, including the addition of the airport TRAX line, will transform the road and impact homes and businesses along the street.

Climate Refugees screening
Monday, May 17
If you think environmental issues only affect the birds and the bees, then it’s time to introduce yourself to another inconvenient truth: Global warming could force many nations to go to war for rapidly depleting resources. To learn more, watch a screening of 2010 Sundance Film Festival documentary Climate Refugees, hosted by the Salt Lake Film Center and other partners. The film explores the many dangers climate change poses to human civilization.
