So, where are the workers? PBS Hawai‘i is bringing together industry representatives, organized labor leaders, workers, economists and workforce trainers to discuss this issue in a live 90-minute program.
The COVID-19 pandemic exposed a frightening vulnerability here that has been decades in the making; Hawaiʻi’s reliance on imported food which is estimated at 85 to 90 percent. Native Hawaiians were self-sufficient for centuries. Studies have shown that although a complete shift back to ancient ways is not feasible, the adoption of a sustainability mentality would go a long way. How do we as a community achieve this? What are the first steps and how do we get buy-in to make change?
Hawai‘i’s visitor count has come roaring back much quicker than experts predicted from the nearly empty days during the past year of the COVID-19 pandemic. The resurgence of visitors has raised concerns from the community to limit the number of tourists. Join us for KĀKOU: Hawaiʻi's Town Hall where we'll discuss what the possible next steps are for our number one industry.
PBS Hawaiʻi visited communities and asked residents a series of questions on tourism. We asked. You answered.
PBS Hawaiʻi held a second live town hall to consider where we are, and where we want to be. Change is inevitable. Some changes come quietly, incrementally, over years; others seem to emerge all of a sudden and nearly full-blown.
In this first live discussion, we ask: “Have You Fact-Checked Your Truth?” We take on the meaning of “truth” and how we view truth in an era of “fake news,” “trolling” and filter bubbles on social media.
