Sink or SLIM: A Local Response to Promote Global Sustainable Change through Education, Partnerships, and Workforce Development
de Roode, Alexander F.; Sakamoto, Clyde M.; Six, Janet
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v33 n11 p907-914 2009
Maui's unique geographic location, culture, economy, and ecology provide a year-round sustainable living laboratory for the development of sustainable solutions to local and global challenges. Maui Community College's mission, goals, and actions are guided by the Native Hawaiian reverence for the ahupuaa, the traditional land management practice of sustaining and sharing diverse but finite resources for the benefit of all. Keeping with this mission, Maui Community College engineered a model to respond to emerging local and global workforce needs though the development of the Sustainable Living Institute of Maui.
