SUSTAINABILITY PLANNING meetings

Filed under: 6Sustainable Environment,HI Politics — BobSchacht @ 7:59 am

A very important series of community meetings is being held in the next 35 days on sustainability issues! This is our opportunity to contribute directly to this process, and will have a long-range impact on life in Hawaii! The following announcement is from the Hawaii2050 press release; for information on sites on the neighbor islands, see the press release.

PUBLIC INVITED TO STATEWIDE COMMUNITY MEETINGS FOR THE
HAWAI‘I 2050 SUSTAINABILITY PLANNING PROCESS
Community Input Crucial to Long-Term Planning for Hawai‘i

Honolulu – The Hawai‘i 2050 Sustainability Task Force invites the public to the second round of community meetings for the Hawai‘i 2050 Sustainability Plan in April and May.

The statewide gatherings will continue engaging residents in the discussion about sustainability and the long-term future of Hawai‘i. This community-driven process is one of the cornerstones of the Hawaii 2050 Sustainability Plan that the Task Force will present to the state Legislature in December.

“Our communities are filled with insightful people. We want to tap the wisdom of our kupuna, the energy of the keiki, the experiences of working families and the innovative spirit of businesspeople,” said Senator Russell Kokubun, Chair of the Hawai‘i 2050 Task Force.

“By bringing as many facets from the community as possible to the planning process, we can create a better long-term future for everyone. We encourage the public to attend.”

The meeting schedule is:
