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.

Presenter: Yolanda Joab-Mori Founder & Director, Island PRIDE Micronesia; Program Coordinator, Blue Prosperity Micronesia. Yolanda is a daughter of the Lasialap clan and a mother of two from the islands of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM). Her roots drive her activism and work on climate action and ocean protection for over a decade. As the Blue Prosperity Micronesia Program Coordinator, Yolanda is leading the FSM’s effort in developing its blue economy, strengthening sustainable fisheries, and creating marine spatial plans that will protect 30% of its marine environment.

Please make sure to register early for this presentation and you will receive the zoom link within a day.
