Last week the Impact Hub HNL community was thrilled to host Hawaii Governor David Ige for a town-hall session focused on key topics that affect our community.
There were about 50 attendees, which included Hub members and community members, and the crowd was able to ask insightful questions of the Governor.
Some of the key points and questions covered during the event included:
- Hawaii has been a leader in sustainability not just in the US but globally, with the Sustainable Hawaii Initiative.
- Transforming Hawaii into a clean energy economy with 100% renewable energy can transform our economy.
- Open data can advance sustainability here in the islands by partnering organizations like Hawaii Green Growth
- How is the state is handling the impending sea level rise?
- Hazard mitigation plan: How is the State is planning for natural disasters?
As a non-partisan organization, Impact Hub HNL has invited all gubernatorial candidates to host town-hall events with an identical format at Impact Hub HNL. Future scheduled events will be on Facebook Live as well.
