What did Akaka Foundation for Tropical Forests need?

Carolyn helped Akaka Foundation for Tropical Forests develop an online presence by creating a social media account on the right platform for their needs and teach them how to manage their accounts.

Why is this project important?

We will conduct an opportunity assessment for identifying viable climate mitigation actions in Hawaii's natural and working lands and crafting equitable policy and programs. Together, these efforts will support diverse stakeholders in their efforts to advance local cultural needs and contribute to meeting legislated mandates concerning soil health, crop yields, and carbon sequestration.

This project will save us $2,397, allowing us to allocate the funding to do more land managers outreach and create a stronger wall-to-wall map tool.

About Akaka Foundation for Tropical Forests

To enhance and promote a forest stewardship ethic that embraces biocultural restoration and conservation strategies through integration of traditional and western knowledge and through strategic cooperation among private and public organizations.

The Akaka Foundation for Tropical Forest’s mission addresses the interdependence of thriving ecosystems, cultural practice, and sustainable livelihood, and is grounded in the Hawaiian cultural perspective that place-based relationships enhance stewardship of all features on land and ocean. This mission encourages active public participation by integrating multiple knowledge systems and expanding the dialogue between various stakeholders in biocultural stewardship efforts. We work from the perspective that all places, whether protected, inhabited, or managed, are integral to the health of the whole. This frame of reference shapes the three components of our work.

I ola 'oe, i ola makou nei, a perspective rooted in the ways of life of native Hawai'i, translates to "My life is dependant on yours; your life is dependant on mine." We strive to embody this perspective in our work and relationships.
