Invest in our Planet

Location: Zoom

This is one of our four virtual keynote speeches to celebrate Lā Honua / Earth Day throughout the month of April. Please see the schedule list of virtual keynotes, presentations, and panels, and our four in-person huakaʻi (environmental and cultural stewardship excursions and volunteer work days) to locations around Hawaiʻi Island at the UH Hilo Earth Day website.

Join us for an opportunity to be reminded of and celebrate the resilience of our peoples across Oceania and how integral that essence is in combating climate change.
