2019 Think Tank

In April 2019, the KC convened the very first Kaliʻuokapaʻakai Collective Think Tank. Over 100 participants from 15 different sectors and 80 organizations participated in the 2-day working conference to discuss a range of challenges, opportunities, and solutions for WKS in Hawai‘i. The Think Tank focused on the current priority areas identified by the Collective including building community capacity, knowledge generation and stewardship, restoring wahi kūpuna, and mālama iwi kūpuna. During this gathering, real-time data was compiled through ignite talks, topic area panels, facilitated breakout discussions, and live surveys. Participants shared, documented, evaluated, and prioritized existing and new information, knowledge, and practices regarding WKS. 

 

From here, the KC created working groups to carry on the Think Tank discussions and brainstorm how to implement the proposed action items. Much was accomplished at this first Think Tank and the KC hopes to hold these types of “conferences with kuleana” every two to three years to continue to tackle systems change in CRM.

In our practice, there is no separation between natural and cultural resources. All of the landscape is a cultural landscape because we have been a part of shaping it, responding to it, shaping it some more and perhaps reshaping it as we learn more about it. So culture is the lens we see the landscape through.
