Brown Bag Lunch Series: Growing Peace in the Light of Climate Change

"Many people face anxiety when dealing with climate change. It's overwhelming, and we are told we are running out of time," says Ming Wei. "I will share some positive, hopeful solutions happening in the heart of a deeply affected area, the low lying atolls of the Freely Associated States of Micronesia, and in Hawai'i." In this talk, learn tools to create and find peace through community resilience actions.

Dr. Koh Ming Wei holds a Ph.D. in Sustainability Education and is interested in how different cultures and indigenous communities work with nature to resolve ecological and social challenges through community partnerships, agriculture, music and art, and place- and projected-based learning. Her work includes how the school garden experience is conducive to teaching core subjects. Ming Wei lives in Puna and often does work in Micronesia.
