Reconnecting to Our Ancestral Roots to Build Sustainable Communities
June 24 – July 1, 2017
World Youth Congress
Our ancestral roots nourish the connections within and around us – to our past, our land (‘aina) and even to our greater purpose in life. Throughout Hawaii’i today, young people are strengthening these connections, creating a cultural renaissance by rediscovering the knowledge and traditional practices of their elders (kupuna).
World Youth Congress (WYC) 2017 will tap into this local movement as we look to build sustainable communities worldwide. The one-week summit will bring together young leaders from around the globe to discuss and identify actions toward this goal, for it is this generation that will ultimately shape our future.
Through Local Action Projects (LAP), workshops, plenaries and more, WYC delegates will develop a collective voice for local and global youth-led development. Delegates will also celebrate the return of Hokule’a from her 60,000 mile Malama Honua Worldwide Voyage and learn from her remarkable story in working toward a sustainable future.
