A little history:

350.org began in 2008.

This 2009 youth-led campaign for awareness and action was the first activity of 350Hawaii.

In 2010, Rob Kinslow interviewed 350.org founder Bill McKibben, who gave a presentation at the State Art Museum.

During the planning for the Waikiki People’s Climate March in 2014, Brodie Lockard, Urie Kline, Sherry Pollack, Dave Mulinix, Joe Mobley, Louis Herman, Michelle Tigchelaar, Leilei Shih, Stuart Scott and others discussed forming a formal Hawaii chapter, complete with web site and membership list.

Brodie announced the new chapter at the march, along with our first goal:  convincing UH to divest from fossil fuels.  After a successful campaign, the UH Board of Regents agreed to divest in May 2015.

In 2017, we partnered with Sierra Club to convince First Hawaiian Bank to divest from the Dakota Access Pipeline.

100% clean energy Oahu by 2030!

To be delivered to Honolulu City Council: "The City and County of Honolulu should ban all new fossil fuel infrastructure, and move to 100% clean renewable energy for all by 2030."

Fight the Wood-Burning Power Plant!

To be delivered to Hawaii Dept of Health: "I oppose issuance of the NPDES Permit No. HI S000557 for stormwater runoff. I urge you to hold a public hearing on this destruction of our valuable natural resources. In addition, for Hu Honua injection wells, please require a NPDES permit, and hold a public hearing."
