Presentations and workshops, usually only available on the mainland, will be available at the summit May 2 through 4 as opportunities to connect to national-level programs, research and trainings. In three jampacked days, the summit will include some of the best expertise from the Hawaii-Pacific region and the U.S. with topics relevant for those working in the fields of emergency response, natural resource management from summit to sea, land-use planning, environmental education, community safety, ecological research and hazard resilience.
There will be time and opportunity for collaborative project planning as well as knowledge-building workshops. Opportunities to meet in the same space, cross pollinate, share lessons learned and collaborate are rare when it comes to wildfire. The training and summit will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each of the five days.
