July 22, 2011 at 9:26 am Leave a comment

Each year Punahou hosts the Student Global Leadership Initiative, bringing students from around the world to Hawaii for a two-week-long meeting on a topic of global interest – this year it’s Energy. The 48 participating students from from 15 schools in China, Japan, Singapore, Jordan and the U.S. will attend lectures and fieldtrips and meet with political and community leaders from the energy sector. The aim of the Initiative is to build leadership skills by engaging the students to conceive a realistic, yearlong project that will better their own countries’ energy shortfalls.

Lumen Solar’s Managing Partner Melissa White will join other community leaders including Jeff Mikulina of Blue Planet Foundation, Perry White of Planning Solutions, and Scott Glenn of the Sierra Club in assisting the students with conceptualizing energy solutions within unique geographical, environmental, and political contexts.

Members of the public are invited to mingle with SGLI students at a special screening of Carbon Nation, a 2010 documentary about climate change, to be shown at Wo Center on Punahou Campus at 6:00 pm on Thursday, July 27. The film will be preceded by a panel discussion with Hawaii Lt. Gov. Brian Schatz and other guest speakers.
