Join us for a creative speaking experience! He Pūkoʻa Kani ʻĀina is an ʻōlelo noʻeau, and refers to a coral reef that becomes an island over time. It can also signify someone growing in a positive way until they become established. With this theme as the foundation, we invite you to a youth-focused kick-off to the 2016 IUCN World Conservation Congress! This event will feature youth presentations, cultural performances, and locally grown food tasting. Thorough storytelling, spoken word, poetry, and songs, this event will be connecting youth voices from across the Hawaiian and Pacific Islands, and reflecting unique experiences in biocultural conservation. August 30, 2016 4pm to 7pm Hawaiʻi Convention Center, Auditorium 310 RSVP for this unique opportunity, for free now at islandstories.eventbrite.com!
