Please join us for a book signing event for Dr. Chirico's newly released book by UH Press, “Thinking Like an Island: Navigating a Sustainable Future in Hawaiʻi,” hosted by the Sustainable Living Institute of Maui from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 at University of Hawaii Maui College in the Kalama Building, Room 103.
Local Maui experts who contributed chapters to the book will be presenting: John Bendon, Jennifer Chirico, Scott Fisher, Penny Levin, Steve Parabicoli, Kirk Surry, Ramsay Taum and Susan Wyche. The panel will include a discussion on key sustainability topics on Maui such as sustainable agriculture, green building, water conservation, culture and school gardens.
The focus of the book is on viewing islands from a systems perspective and the importance of valuing the entire system in nature rather than just the parts.
Signed copies of the book will be available for sale at a discount during the event.
We hope to see you there! Mahalo!
