When you hear the word “peace,” what comes to mind? war-1247950_1920

Do you think of another era marked by flowers and peace signs? 

  Or, war-torn areas of the world that repeatedly make and break peace treaties with their neighbors?

The good news is that there’s a new definition of peace emerging. One that’s not just about ending wars, but actually making your daily life better. It’s about starting in your heart and relationships and creating a positive ripple through your community and far beyond.

Innovative peace building solutions are taking hold across the world — thanks to visionaries who are engaging in global social and political movements and everyday citizens performing great acts of compassion in their homes and communities.

Some of the wisest, most inspiring leaders and passionate activists from all over the world are not only part of it, but guiding the way forward — from The Dalai Lama to Archbishop Desmond Tutu to Jody Williams to Jane Goodall… and more.

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 decreasing entropy, building community resilience, giving voice-to-the-voiceless, or making visible-the-invisible, my teams envision, innovate, and demonstrate community improvements, through inspiration, education, lean action and community synergy, using both local and global campaigns, 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 participant and social philanthropist in the fabric of the islands, via for-benefit, for-profit and faith networks. Worked my way to a masters degree with distinction in Sustainable Development Leadership from Hawaii Pacific University. Change agent, strategic sustainability advisor, and inspirational public speaker, I've spoke 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 HawaiiReporter.com, I writes about science, climate change, spirituality, and systems, and how these scale to social improvement.
