Focus the Nation: A Renaissance of Clean Energy

February 15, 10:00am - 4:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Campus Center Ballroom

Under the lens of rising development and persisting dependence on non-renewable energy sources we are facing the possibility for an irreversible economic collapse of island life. Our response to development is energy innovation and roadblocking solutions on the island of Oahu. We will explore the the detriments of the future of The University of Hawaii at Manoa if there is no change in behavior towards energy consumption and if energy efficiency goes unaddressed. The gravity of this situation calls for discussion, debate, and re-examination of the current state of affairs for Hawaii's clean energy challenge. For this reason, this forum will empower students and community members to share research and discuss the implications that will promote a student led campaign that produces a state with energy in dependency by the year 2030. Our clean energy renaissance values the purposeful behavior of making trade-offs for the next alternative energy. With aspirations to create an action plan afterwards, this movement will mark a change in campus priorities and produce results.
