Meetings Other Relevant Events
n honor of the United Nations International Year of Small Island Developing States, 2014 marks the 22nd Annual Hawai‘i Conservation Conference (HCC) allowing us the opportunity to assemble the minds of island conservation in Hawai‘i and other Pacific Islands. This year’s theme “Navigating Change in the Pacific Islands” is intended to bridge the challenge of ridge-to-reef conservation while recognizing the broad connection of islands and oceans. This concept is built around the people, places, social, and cultural components that define conservation capacity while realizing that the norm is constantly shifting especially with climate change. Highlights include: thought-provoking keynote speakers, panels and forums, innovative networking and training opportunities, and more. Join us in celebrating the 22nd Annual HCC!
