October 2018


Thank you to all those who helped me realize my dream. It’s been an amazing 6-year journey! We hope that our Sustainable Hawaii site will inspire youth, educators, business and community organizations to work together to build a sustainable future for us all.  www.dthshyli.org

  • We’ve collaborated with Design Thinking Hawaii to create SHYLI’s 3rd Sustainability Forum;
  • We conducted a Sustainability Survey to discover people’s priorities and sustainability goals;
  • We engaged Hawaii’s youth and educators to envision how this site would best support them;
  • We researched learning tools to give users access sustainable projects and volunteer opportunities;
  • We created a user-friendly website that allows people to learn and be engaged in sustainable goals.
  • We BETA tested the site with global youth leaders at the Institute’s 14th Sustainable Youth Summit;

I would personally like to thank all those who helped us:

Thanks to everyone’s support we have learned valuable lessons on how to create this online resource guide for youth, educators, business and the community organizations to work together to build a sustainable Hawaii. From learning tools to videos and a matching system to connect business green jobs and community with volunteers.

Mahalo nui loa for supporting us and we hope to be another step in making Hawaii a more beautiful and sustainable place.
