University of Hawaii Island has now relocated! Please take a look at our new island and also join us on our “St. Patrick’s Day & Sustainability” Event in the new island. We’d like to make this event as educational and influential as possible in efforts to promote people’s awareness on sustainability. The University of Hawaii Office of Sustainability notes that “The University of Hawaii can play a key role in shaping our local, regional and global future. As one of the state’s largest consumers of energy and water, a significant contributor to its traffic load and waste stream, and an active guardian of its cultural history and customs, the University can have a major impact on the safeguarding of Hawaii’s precious natural and social legacies”(UH Office of Sustainability).

We have a useful presentation tools workshop, for those that would like to sharpen their presentation skills. We  are also hosting a fun Irish Dancing session along with a game of Jeopardy and prize giveaways from the University of Hawaii’s virtual education group!

An orientation session will be held at 3pm for new users. To attend you will need to download the Second Life program (http://www.secondlife.com) and have an account, both free (see below for instructions). If you have any problems with installing Second Life application to your computer, please contact Yoko (yyamamot@hawaii.edu)

4:45 – 5:15 pm “Presentation Tools Workshop” with Adra Letov and SiFan Shan
