After Dr. Fletcher’s presentation on the science of climate change and its consequences, registrants will have a chance to hear from one of 12 different environmental organizations.
Registrants will be able to choose a breakout session led by one of Hawaii’s environmental organizations where they will be given a chance to engage on how to take action locally (all sessions will be recorded so folks can go back and hear about as many organizations as they want).
