A Report of the Annual High School Workshop on Managing Hawaii's Future (5th).
Hawaii State Commission on Population and the Hawaiian Future, Honolulu.
The State Commission on Population and the Hawaiian Future was established by the 1973 Legislature in recognition of the State's concern to manage population growth and its effects on the quality of life of Hawaii's people. One of the Commission's legislatively mandated responsibilities is to coordinate efforts to incorporate population and environmental awareness in the State's educational system. Thus, the Commission has conducted an annual workshop for high school students throughout the State to increase their awareness of population issues and problems facing Hawaii and the continuing need to plan for the future. This is a report of the fifth such workshop, designed to involve students in planning for Hawaii's future by identifying and discussing causes and consequences of population growth and change, and by formulating policies to manage this growth. Included are student recommendations related to population, students' evaluations of the workshop, and (in appendices) informational material sent to students prior to the workshop. These include a teaching module ("Population and Hawaii: A Case Study"), tests related to the module, and a copy of Hawaii's "State Plan Objective, Policies, and Implementing Actions for Population."
