ʻAha Kūkā: Conversations about the future of Maunakea


We are excited to announce some recent developments in the advancement of EnVision Maunakea’s community engagement process. Since March, we’ve held three ʻAha Kūkā listening sessions, all of which foster open, inclusive and respectful conversations of diverse perspectives with members of the community. Each session brings new information and the threads of common narratives about future uses of Maunakea and conditions under which those ideas can coexist. Together, we hope to better understand the future we envision for Maunakea, for generations to come.
