Hawaii in 2050? - Will any of us be around to see it?

What will Hawaii be like in 2050?

There have been many articles about the topic of this article in the local newspaper, on blogs, and even in the monthly Hawaii Realtors magazine, published by the Hawaii Association of Realtors. What kinds of jobs will our children and grandchildren have? Where will they live? How will the "Aloha Spirit" survive in the 21st century? Questions like these are at the core of the Hawaii 2050 Sustainability plan. Hawaii 2050 was founded in 2005 and is guided by the Hawai`i 2050 Sustainability task Force, a 25-member body of private citizen, state lawmakers, and county planning officials.

There are five goals for the plan. 1) A way of life: 2) The Economy: 3) Environment and Natural Resources: 4) Community and Social Well-Being, and 5) Kanaka Maoli and Island values. Goals are broad themes that emerged from the community meetings. Strategic actions are the programs that will achieve the goals. Indicators publicly measure the progress or lack of progress in achieving the goals. You can check out the website, www.hawaii2050.org and provide your input.
