The Sustainable Living Institute of Kaua’i
Our vision is for a sustainable campus that empowers an island community rich in diversity to actively engage in the efforts needed to secure a vibrant and abundant future through developing innovative approaches to the cultural, social, environmental, and financial issues of today and tomorrow. We are training tomorrow’s leaders, tomorrow’s decision makers, and it is important that we ground the education we provide in the knowledge and experience of the value of diversity, diversity of culture, of history, of perspectives, for it is this diversity that will ultimately lead us to a prosperous, resilient, and sustainable future.
