The Hawaii Exemplary State Foundation will hold “A Model System for Empowering the Community to Achieve and Sustain Watershed Ecosystem Health: A Model for the Rest of the World.” Dr. Bruce Wilcox from Bangkok, Thailand will facilitate discussions and engage the community in how to implement a complex systems approach in formulating strategic solutions in addressing issues surrounding the Ala Wai Watershed. He will explain how we are all interdependent of each other and how by working together as a community, we will be able to transform what is considered the most polluted water body in the state into a “swimmable and fishable” water way in 7 years.
