"The video was launched on September 2nd, at the IUCN World Conservation Congress during our pavilion session 'Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage and the Promise to Paeʻ Āina o Hawaiʻi' on Friday, September 2nd 2016. Our partners are quite pleased with the video and excited to share it on their respective websites. ʻOiwi TV did a great job in capturing the essence of our P2P commitments and how they reflect our voyage here in Hawaiʻi, to Mālama Honua our oceans by working together. It is the hope of our partners and all involved in this project, that we use this video as a tool and resource for further advancing the work of Promise to Paeʻ Āina, itʻs legacy, and collective commitment to Mālama Honua our Island Earth."
-LorMona LGJ Meredith, Promise to the Paeʻ Āina o Hawai'i Coordinator
"This environmental initiative is a unique collective impact efforts inspired by the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage, bringing together individuals and organizations from all sectors to increase the health of Hawaiʻi’s oceans through five focus areas, Our Future, Our Heritage, Our Island Home, Our Responsibility, and Our Livelihood, by the time Hōkūleʻa makes her return to Hawai’i in 2017. Committed government entities, hotels and corporations, schools, and individuals have signed the Promise to Paeʻāina.
The stewardship role of Hawaii ASLA falls under Our Island Home and Wao Kanaka (realm of people)."
