The Hawai’i Environmental Education Alliance – HEEA – A Breathan educated and engaged island community that values Hawai’i, our relationship with the ʻāina, and is empowered to live sustainably


The Hawai’i Environmental Education Alliance (HEEA) strengthens environmental literacy in Hawai’i by providing various pathways for our educators and partners to engage in ʻāina-based learning experiences. In Hawaiian thought HEEA speaks to a breath, a life, an air. As we continue to strengthen support for environmental education we build upon our moʻokūauhau (genealogy) and embrace our breath. During this facilitated discussion we will explore ways to support education, cultural practice, and science by inviting participants to share their experiences and exchange their ideas to improve our ability to reach diverse audiences and communities in Hawaiʻi and throughout the Pacific.
