The Concept

Imagine a Hawai'i where our streams were clean, valleys lush with native forest, and oceans teeming with coral reefs and healthy fisheries. One where the preservation of our islands natural resources were a top priority that benefited our local economy. Imagine a Hawai'i that was 100% powered off of renewable energy and locally grown food was abundant. A place where whatever is taken out of the environment was put back in, all of our waste was recycled or reused, and the pollutants from our urban society were carefully managed so as not to ever disrupt the natural environment. 

Now imagine a Hawai'i that put the needs of local people first. A society where agriculture, renewable energy, education, science/technology, and the arts drove our economy. Imagine communities where people were healthy and culture thrived while tourism was aimed at offering visitors an authentic experience of modern day Hawaiian culture at levels sustainable by our local communities and infrastructure. 

This is the type of Hawai'i that we dream of and our overarching goal is to do whatever we can to make this vision a reality. We don't have all the answers nor do we know what the future holds. What we do have is a deep sense of Aloha for our home and the desire to help make a change. For us, that change starts in our own backyard, working with the people around us. If we can make a difference on that fundamental level and help more people share this vision, then we believe anything is possible. 

Environmental / Cultural Collaboration

We want to open ourselves to working together with local businesses, non-profits, and grassroots community organizations to help better connect communities and the economy to the environment & culture. 

Maunalua Bay

Nelson Mandela once said that "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." Maunalua Bay is our place based educational site to encourage students from the Maunalua region and beyond to become involved with environmental restoration efforts in their own backyard. 

Media Production

In the 21st century, so much of what we do and how we communicate depend on high quality media production. Whether it's photography, film, or written pieces, we strive to create professional content that brings awareness/understanding and is engrained in contemporary Hawaiian culture.
