ELP Director David Forman, and many ELP faculty, students, and alumni have partnered with our colleagues at Elisabeth Haub Law School, Pace University and worked very hard over the past year to create this amazing, complex, collaborative moot court on inter-generational climate justice from the ground up for presentation at the IUCN Congress on two days: September 1 (at the Supreme Court) and September 5 (at the Congress, Hawaiʻi Convention Center).

Please see the attached flyer for the Sept. 1 afternoon moot court at our Supreme Court, which is free and open to members of the IUCN World Commission on Environmental Law, members of the Hawaii State Bar Association, and members of the Richardson ʻOhana.

Please encourage your friends and colleagues interested in climate change issues and international law to come to this unique event.

After 22-y of self-funding social improvement projects, I can say that if the wealth holders in our society would spend 40-60% of their income on social improvement projects, these islands would be a much nicer place. Whether it is building community resilience, giving voice-to-the-voiceless, or making visible-the-invisible, my project teams envision, innovate, and demonstrate community improvements, through inspiration, education, lean action and community synergy, focused in the areas of conservation, agriculture, and energy innovation. For several years I served on the Umematsu and Yasu Watada Lectures on Peace, Social Justice and the Environment, bringing voices like Frances Moore Lappe, David Korten, Richard Heinberg, Helena Norberg Hodge and Dr. Steven Schneider to Honolulu. I've been a social philanthropist in the fabric of the islands, via for-benefit, for-profit and faith networks. Change agent, strategic sustainability advisor, and inspirational public speaker, I've spoken to audiences across Hawaii's business, government, and educational sectors. Mixing a friendly approach, a professional curiosity, and downbeat humor, in my presentations, shift happens. At, I write about science, climate change, spirituality, and systems, and how these scale to social improvement.
