About the Event

Kuleana Program Series Overview

LbE Hawaii's Kuleana Program is a 6-part series program that includes 6 mini programs dedicated to each of the state of Hawaii's Aloha+ Challenge as well as a full program that covers all 6 challenges. The program features sustainability-related lectures, site visits, collaboration, a project, and a presentation. After successful completion of the program, participants continue their efforts as sustainability advocates in building a sustainable Hawaiʻi and beyond.

Kuleana: Waste Reduction Program Overview

In this mini program, participants will meet for 1.5 days balanced between online and physical atmospheres, and will learn specifically about the Aloha+ Challenge: Waste Reduction. By the end of the program, participants are expected to better understand this single challenge and shall dedicate life-long actions and advocacy towards the goals of the challenge. 

Who Can Participate

FOR THIS SCHEDULED PROGRAM: We will only accept participants currently in high school, ages 13~18

Throughout the year, we will host programs for specific demographic groups. This will allow for collaboration with participants in the same demographic group. We encourage organized groups such as schools, clubs, sports teams, etc., to join a program together as this program is a great opportunity for team building and collaboration. We also encourage single participants from different schools to join this program as this is a great opportunity to network with other participants from different schools.
