2023 Conference on Island Sustainability
“Ti ta nisisita ayudun sanhiyong para ta fan maolek guini
gi tåno-ta. Tåya’ ta’lo.”
“Satisfied with what our islands furnish us, we desire nothing else”
-Chief Hurao 1671
Isolated? Limited? Vulnerable?
This year, we swim beyond the scarcity of the shallows, and dive deeper
to rediscover our island abundance.
Woven in priceless biodiversity,
blanketed in lush vegetation,
islands are surrounded by fish wandering above rich minerals hidden below the sea floor.
We will create our sustainable future together, through…
Healthy and prosperous communities,
educated and capable workforces,
green homes, utilities, transportation,
thriving natural resources, and
innovation to solve our most pressing sustainability challenges.
Connected. Plentiful. Secure.
Rediscover the Depths of Our Island Abundance
