Oʻahu and Kaua‘i friends: Wednesday 04/13 is a big day. Don’t miss it.

Please take the time to show up.

That’s who wins you know. The people that show up.

On Kaua‘i at 6pm, there is a “must-attend” virtual panel and community discussion on what’s happened, what’s happening, and what still needs to happen with regards to climate change in Hawaiʻi.

In 2017 we became the first state to enact a law that aligned with the Paris Agreement. In 2021 Hawaiʻi became the first state to pass a Climate Emergency Resolution. What’s our Climate Action Plan in 2022 to back up these bold moves?

The discussion starts at 6pm. Register to attend at: https://bit.ly/climatelegislation

According to The Garden Island newspaper –

“The county’s four state lawmakers will tackle climate legislation and questions from their constituents at this Wednesday’s virtual Kaua‘i Climate Action Forum at 6 p.m.

The virtual event comes as the state Legislature’s 2022 session draws to a close, and one year after Hawai‘i became the first state in the nation to pass a climate emergency resolution.

Now, the forum’s hosts — environmental groups Kaua‘i Climate Action Coalition, Zero Waste Kaua‘i and the local chapter of the Surfrider Foundation — want to know what happens next.”
