Join Us at Jack Johnson Honolulu Concerts, Aug 4th – 5th
Aloha Friends, Partners and Supporters of the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage, we are pleased to announce that the Polynesian Voyaging Society will be participating once again in the All At Once Jack Johnson Summer Tour.
Jack Johnson grew up surfing and playing guitar in Hawaii. Since 2001, he has released six studio albums and two live albums that have sold over 25 million copies worldwide. His Brushfire Records label and touring crew have been leaders in the greening of the music industry and his All At Once social action network connects fans with local non-profits at each tour stop. Jack, with his wife Kim, founded the Kokua Hawaiʻi Foundation to support environmental education in Hawaii’s schools and communities, as well as the Johnson Ohana Foundation to support environmental, art and music education worldwide. Kokua Hawaiʻi Foundation has been a pivotal partner in the Promise to Paeʻ Āina Collective Impact Effort, the environmental initiative of the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage.
As part of our continued efforts in the Mālama Honua movement and to encourage lifelong engagement in a culture of sustainability, conservation and green practices, we are excited to be a nonprofit partner in the 2017 Jack Johnson Summer Tour and All At Once community – a fun interactive network connecting nonprofits with citizens who are passionate in building and sustaining a healthier community and planet. This year’s All At Once campaign focuses on engaging and empowering people to produce and support sustainable local food systems and champion plastic free initiatives. Join us on this collective impact journey to make and sustain long-lasting change for our environment, and for the betterment of all of Island Earth.
This one-of-a-kind community tour is heading to Hawaiʻi the first weekend of August! Jack Johnson will be performing in his hometown on August 4th & 5th at the Waikiki Shell. We invite you all to join us and be a part of the All At Once Community – take environmental action and create global change!!!!

There are an array of exciting and creative ideas on how to take action in your homes, schools, workplaces and communities, including numerous opportunities on how to engage in local food sustainability practices, plastic free initiatives and the mālama honua mission – you do not have to go to a Jack Johnson concert to be a part of this global movement!
Visit our PVS Booth at the Jack Johnson show on August 4th and 5th at the Waikiki Shell. Talk story with Hōkūleʻa and Hikianalia crew members who will be onsite before the concert, along with other local nonprofits.

Watch The Smog of the Sea Film or host a special community screening. We were honored to showcase The Smog of the Sea film at the Mālama Honua Homecoming Summit held at the Hawaiʻi Convention Center on June 18th – 20th. The film chronicles a 1-week journey through the remote waters of the Sargasso Sea. Marine scientist Marcus Eriksen invited onboard an unusual crew to help him study the sea: renowned surfers Keith & Dan Malloy, musician Jack Johnson, spearfisher woman Kimi Werner, and bodysurfer Mark Cunningham. The crew became citizen scientists on a mission to assess the fate of plastics in the world’s oceans. The film helps to dispel the myth of a giant floating garbage patch and shows the reality – smog of microplastics permeating the world’s oceans. You can watch the film online at www.smogofthesea.com or email Jessica@jackjohnsonmusic.com if you would like to host a screening in your own community.
